SHREVEPORT , La -

A man accused of pulling an assault style weapon on a Shreveport police officer is behind bars this morning.

Police say 28-year-old Labroderick Alexander of Shreveport turned himself in Tuesday night.

The incident took place Sunday evening when Probationary Officer Joshua Cordell attempted to pull Alexander over for a traffic violation at Linwood Avenue and West 70th Street.

Alexander pulled his vehicle to a stop on West 77th Street and Dowdell Street, armed himself with an assault style weapon and fled the car on foot.  While fleeing, Alexander reportedly turned and pointed the weapon at officer Cordell.  In response, officer Cordell fired his weapon at Alexander.  No one was hit or injured.

Alexander has been taken to the Caddo Correctional Center. He's charged with aggravated assault on a peace officer and felony possession of a firearm.
