Authorities are investigating the shooting of a woman this morning.
At approximately 6:21 a.m. on August 5, 2012, Shreveport Police patrol officers were dispatched to Willis-Knighton South relative to a female patient there who had been shot.
Upon arrival, officers learned 26 year old Jessica Brooks, who was suffering from a single gunshot wound to the buttocks, had been brought to the emergency room in a private vehicle. Brooks is expected to recover from her injuries.
Brooks told detectives she, her husband and a group of acquaintances were leaving a nightclub in the 600 block of Commerce Street between 4:00 a.m. and 5:00 a.m. this morning when they heard gunshots ring out.
According to initial statements given to investigators, the couple and their friends subsequently got in a vehicle together and left the area before Brooks allegedly realized she had been wounded.
Brooks and her husband then dropped their passengers off before heading to the hospital.
Anyone with any information regarding this crime should contact Shreveport-Caddo Parish Crime Stoppers at 318-673-7373.
