Heated dispute leaves one recovering from gunshot wounds

Darius Shivers, 26 Darius Shivers, 26

A Shreveport man was hospitalized last night after he was shot during a dispute.

Saturday, July 20, around 6pm, officers with the Shreveport Police Department's Community Response Unit heard gunshots being fired near the 3400 block of Clarke Boulevard. Upon arrival, officers found 29 year old Kendric Bracken suffering from gunshot wounds to the left arm and left ankle. Bracken was subsequently transported to LSUHSC by the Shreveport Fire Department with what have been described as non-life-threatening injuries. Authorities discovered the victim was apparently wounded by 26 year old Darious Shivers during the course of some sort of argument between the two. Shivers fled the scene of the crime but was later apprehended by police. Shivers was booked into the Shreveport City Jail on one count each of aggravated battery and convicted felon in possession of a firearm. Officers recovered the handgun they believe was used to shoot the victim.
