SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

Police are looking for a Shreveport man accused of shooting another man at an intersection in west Shreveport late last week.

Shreveport police detectives have obtained an arrest warrant charging 24-year-old Robert "Raphael" Clark, of the 8700 block of Janet Circle, with one count of attempted second degree murder in connection with the shooting of 20-year-old Kortez Hobley on September 14.

Police say it happened after the men apparently had been involved in some sort of altercation outside a convenience store near the intersection of Linwood Avenue and West 70th Street. Hobley left the scene in a vehicle and Clark allegedly followed in another car, pulling up beside the victim and firing multiple shots at him, striking him in the leg.

Hobley was taken to LSUHSC, where he was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

As a result of their investigation, detectives have arrested 20-year-old Kijafa Edwards for one count of principal to attempted second degree murder. Investigators believe Edwards was driving the car that Clark was riding in at the time he allegedly shot Hobley.

Clark's bond has been set at $500,000. Police believe Clark is armed and dangerous and are asking anyone who has information regarding the whereabouts of Robert "Raphael" Clark to contact Shreveport-Caddo Parish Crime Stoppers at 318-673-7373 or www.lockemup.org.
