SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – Shreveport police are on the scene of a shooting in the Hollywood neighborhood where a man was wounded Tuesday night.
According to Cpl. Marcus Hines, officers received a call just before 9:30 p.m. New Year’s Eve about shots being fired in the 700 block of West 70th Street. Police said when they arrived at the National Liquor Bank, they found a male victim with a gunshot wound to the stomach. Hines said the victim has non-life-threatening injuries and was rushed to a local hospital.
According to police, the gunfire followed a fight between customers inside the store. Investigators said the shooter fled the scene in a red pickup truck and a third person chased the fleeing suspect in a black vehicle, firing shots at the red truck.
At this time, no one is in custody and police are searching for the suspect.
“We do believe they have pretty good surveillance here,” said Hines. “If it’s operational, we should be able to have some clues as to who the persons were inside the store.”
If you have any information on this incident, please call police at (318) 673-7300.
