SHREVEPORT, LA (KMSS) — Authorities are working to identify a gunman who shot a local man in west Shreveport last night.
At around 9:10 p.m., officers were sent to the intersection of Union Avenue and West 70th Street to a shooting. Upon arrival, officers found 18-year-old Dshundre Harris suffering from a gunshot wound to the lower left leg. Harris was taken to a local hospital with minor injury.
