Authorities are working to identify and apprehend the gunman who shot a local man in west Shreveport last night.
At approximately 9:10 p.m. on June 28, 2012, Shreveport Police patrol officers were dispatched to the intersection of Union Avenue and West 70th Street relative to a shooting.
Upon arrival, officers found 18 year old Dshundre Harris suffering from a gunshot wound to the lower left leg. Harris was subsequently transported to LSUHSC by the Shreveport Fire Department with what was described as a non-life-threatening injury.
Detectives responded and learned the victim and another man were apparently walking in the 6600 block of Clift Avenue when a known male suspect approached them and attempted to start a fight.
During the course of the altercation, the suspect allegedly produced a handgun and fired several shot at the men as they fled on foot, one of which struck Harris.
Investigators are working at this hour to positively identify the shooter and are asking anyone with any information regarding this crime to contact Shreveport-Caddo Parish Crime Stoppers at 318-673-7373.
