A man who was shot after allegedly attacking a woman at a Shreveport apartment complex has died of his injuries.
Shreveport police say they got the call at around 7:40 this morning that there was a shooting at Country Club Apartments in the 4300 block of Lakeshore Drive. There, they found Leeartavious Barrett, 37, suffering a gunshot wound to the head. He was taken to University Health.
Based on a preliminary investigation, the woman was leaving the complex, presumably on her way to work, when Barrett allegedly attacked her and tried to strangle her. That's when she pulled out her own gun and shot him.
Police say she did not know the alleged attacker but had seen him lurking in the area before the incident. The woman was questioned. She has not been charged with a crime.
The Caddo Parish District Attorney's Office will review the case.
