SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) – We now know the name of the suspect that was arrested in the chase that resulted in an officer involved shooting on Interstate-49.
After an investigation, Shreveport Police identified the suspect as 19 year-old Kory Gay.
According to police, Gay escaped from a work release program in Ouachita Parish late last month.
It all started as a traffic stop at W. 69th and Dowdell. Officers spotted the car, a Chevy Malibu, and it was listed as stolen.
They went to pull the car over, and that's when the chase began.
When the suspect approached the I-49 North to I-20 East ramp, he ran into one of the police cars.
After the collision, an officer was able to fire a shot at the suspects rear window, shattering all of the glass. Gay suffered at least one gunshot wound in the upper torso area.
When the suspect's car came to a stop a Shreveport Police K-9 and other officers were able to take him into custody. Officers tell us that a K-9 officer may have bitten him as well.
Gay was taken to LSU Hospital.
