SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – Police say a juvenile is charged in connection with the shooting of a Shreveport gas station clerk overnight.
Officers were called just before midnight to the Circle K near the corner of Jefferson Paige Road and Pines Road after a customer went into the convenience store and found an employee on the floor with multiple gunshot wounds.
SPD says that the victim, a 20-year-old man, was shot in the head and in the shoulder. He was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries and is in now critical condition, but he is expected to survive.
Police say they identified the 17-year-old suspect after reviewing video surveillance footage and interviewing witnesses. He will be charged with one count of attempted second-degree murder.
Investigators believe the teen and the victim know each other, but they are still investigating why the shooting happened.
