SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) –  Shreveport Police detectives are investigating four separate shootings Sunday morning October 10th,  that left several victims nursing gunshot wounds.

The first was just after midnight.  Patrol officers were dispatched to the intersection of Fulton St. and Fairy Ave., where they found 22 year old Jarvis Randle suffering from a 'non-life-threatening' gunshot wound to the arm.  The officers learned that the victim had been involved in some type of altercation with 22 year old Jamichael Dykes during which Dykes fired shots at Randle, striking him in the arm. Dykes has was taken into custody and booked on one count of aggravated battery.

Just 35 minutes later, officers were dispatched to the emergency room at Willis-Knighton North, where another shooting victim had turned up.  21 year old Quinnderick Thomas was shot in the leg, but is expected to survive.  Investigators say he was unable to name the man who shot, and could not provide much more information.

At approximately 3:02 a.m., officers were called to LSUHSC regarding 19 year old Kadarius Reed, who arrived by private auto at the emergency room there with a gunshot wound to the lower torso. Detectives believe Reed was shot outside of a night club in the 3700 block of Hollywood Avenue during a large fight at that location. Reed's wound is serious but, according to investigators, he is expected to live.

Less than two hours later, officers were called back to the emergency room at LSUHSC for another shooting victim there. Officers found 21 year old Elton Madison suffering from a gunshot wound to his left arm. Madison told detectives he left a club in downtown Shreveport and was driving westbound on Interstate 20 when he heard gunshots and saw an unknown suspect shooting at him from a white vehicle.

Investigators are not prepared to say if any of these shootings are related, but they report they are not ruling anything out in the early stages of these investigations. Anyone with any information regarding these shootings is urged to call Shreveport Police detectives at 318-673-6955 or Shreveport-Caddo Parish Crime Stoppers at 318-673-7373.
