SHERVEPORT, LA (KMSS) — A Shreveport man is dead after an apparent home invasion Saturday morning.
At around 6:15 a.m, officers were dispatched to a house in the 3000 block of Amherst Street to a shooting. Upon arrival, police found a man lying in the front lawn suffering from a gunshot wound. The man, later identified as Duntavious Young, 22, of Shreveport, was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.
