Man with medical condition mistaken for stabbing victim

Shreveport, LA(KSLA)- A 80 year-old male cab driver who turned up at the LSU Medical Center ER Saturday afternoon with what police initially thought was a stab wound was only suffering from a medical condition that mimicked a stab.

Police initially thought the man had been stabbed, but later on, doctors confirmed that the man suffered a medical condition that caused him to bleed excessively. The man did undergo treatment for his condition.

Shreveport Police say no further investigation is warranted.
