CADDO PARISH, La. (KTAL/KMSS) A Frierson man was arrested late Sunday afternoon in what Caddo Sheriff deputies described as a road rage shooting incident that occurred in south Caddo Parish on LA Highway 3132, according to Caddo Parish Sheriff Steve Prator.

James Donald Starr, II, was the alleged shooter and was booked into the Caddo Correctional Center for one count of Aggravated Assault with a Firearm.

Late Sunday afternoon, just before 4 p.m., two vehicles traveling westbound on LA Highway 3132 near the West 70th  exit were involved in a road rage dispute. The driver of a black Lexus ES-350 brake checked the motorist driving a black Chrysler 300 for following too closely.

As the road rage dispute continued, a passenger from the Lexus 350 fired a shot from the vehicle and struck the roof of the motorist’s Chrysler 300 vehicle. Both parties involved placed a 911 call to report the incident. Shreveport Police assisted by conducting a traffic stop on both vehicles involved near I-20 and Exit 5 in Greenwood.

After further investigation, Caddo patrol deputy Dirk Chapman was contacted and interviewed both parties at the TA Truck stop in Greenwood.

It was later determined that Starr, the passenger in the Lexus was the shooter, and his wife was driving the car.

No parties involved were injured during the incident.

The case is still under investigation.
