SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – Shreveport police were at the scene of a Saturday morning shooting in the Queensborough area. Just after 10 a.m., Shreveport police responded to reports of a male found shot in the 3000 block of Jackson Street, between Kentucky and Alabama Avenues.

When officers arrived, they found the victim in the street suffering from a gunshot wound to the ankle. He was taken to Ochsner’s LSU Health. According to neighbors at the scene as well as SPD, the victim and another man were in an argument when the victim was shot.

“It occurred because the suspect and the victim were involved in a previous altercation that the victim called and made a report of. It was an ongoing problem between these two gentlemen.” said Sgt. Shawn Hurd with SPD, “The suspect was still on scene when we arrived. The victim pointed him out and said his name and he was still sitting on his porch.”
