Shreveport man shot while leaving apartment complex

Posted: Updated:

A shooting in south Shreveport left a man injured Sunday evening and investigators are piecing together what happened.

It happened around 6:15 p.m. near the intersection of Dollarway Drive and Janey Street in the Valley View neighborhood.

The shooting victim was hit by several gunshots shortly after driving out of the Villa Marquis Apartment complex with a female passenger, Shreveport Police Detective Rod Demery said.

After he was shot, the car continued across Dollarway before crashing into a fence and a storage building.

Paramedics transported the victim to University Health with what police are calling possible life-threatening injuries.

Police confirm the car the man was driving when he was shot is a rental car that had been reported stolen, but they say there is no indication the shooting is related to the theft of the vehicle.

If you have any information about the case, contact Crime Stoppers at (318) 673-7373.
