Shreveport Councilman Jerry Bowman suffers medical emergency
The Shreveport City Council work session Nov. 13 turned from a debate over leadership of the city's Police Department to a medical emergency. Jerry Bowman, one of two councilmen pushing for Alan Crump to be removed as police chief, was rushed to a hospital during the meeting. Previously, Bowman sent a letter to the mayor asking the police chief to step down. Now Councilman William Bradford is asking fellow council members for a vote of no confidence in Crump.
