SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

Authorities continue to search for a suspect in the shooting death of Jasmine Hall, 27, of Shreveport. Hall was killed in Shreveport's Highland neighborhood late Friday night.

Hall was pronounced dead at LSU Health after she was rushed to the hospital with at least one gunshot wound to her upper body.

David Steen lives in the neighborhood and described the scene the night of the shooting.

"I was half asleep in my recliner when I heard a gun shot," said Steen. "It woke me up and my wife asked, 'what was that? Was that a firecracker or a gun shot?'"

Shreveport Police patrol officers were dispatched around 10:40 p.m. Friday to a home in the 300 block of Boulevard Street for a report of a shooting. Upon arrival, patrolmen discovered Hall suffering from the gunshot wound.

According to the Shreveport Police Department, detectives responded to the scene of the crime and, upon further investigation, learned that Hall and a man reported to be her husband arrived at a residence there on Boulevard Street to find a known male suspect standing in the driveway. According to preliminary information gathered by investigators, the woman's husband, Brandon Reed, and the male suspect engaged in a physical confrontation during which the suspect pulled out a handgun and fired at least one shot, striking the Hall. The gunman then fled in a vehicle.
 
Investigators are now following up on witness statements and evidence recovered at the scene in an ongoing effort to positively identify the killer and they are asking anyone with any information regarding this homicide to contact Shreveport-Caddo Parish Crime Stoppers at 318-673-7373 or www.lockemup.org
