Shreveport police are investigating a shooting in the Allendale neighborhood that sent one man to the hospital and landed another behind bars.

Police say it happened just after 8 p.m. Sunday in the 800 block of Pierre Avenue. When police arrived, they found 52-year-old Roderick Owens suffering from a gunshot to his lower body. Owens was initially taken to LSU Medical Center with what were described as life-threatening injuries. He has since been listed in fair condition.

Police arrested 39-year-old Derrick Washington in connection to the shooting. Police say they believe Washington and Owens got into an argument before Washington left to get a gun. Washington returned minutes later and allegedly shot Owens.

Washington was taken to the Shreveport City Jail and charged with attempted second degree murder.
