Bernice Circle shooting

SHREVEPORT, La. - A child remains hospitalized in critical condition after being shot in the head at a house late Wednesday night. 

It happened around 9:30 p.m. in the 700 block of Bernice Circle in the West Cedar Grove area of Shreveport.

Shreveport Police Chief Ben Raymond and Mayor Adrian Perkins were on the scene.

"We do have several witnesses, I wouldn't say in custody, but we are going to interview them. It does appear that this happened inside the home and not a drive by shooting from the outside but we are not sure what happened inside the home at this time," Raymond said.

The child was taken to Ochsner LSU Health hospital with life threatening injuries.

No arrests have been made. The investigation is ongoing.
