SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

Police are searching for a suspect they said fired shots Sunday afternoon at a Shreveport business.

One of those shots struck a bystander, injuring his hand. Police said the wound was not considered to be life threatening but he was taken to University Health Shreveport. 

According to police, a gray Dodge sedan and a red Dodge sedan were traveling southbound on Linwood Avenue near Corbitt Street just after 2 p.m. when the gray car pulled into the parking lot of a nearby tire shop.

Reports indicate that the red car stopped along Linwood and someone inside began firing a handgun toward the gray car. During the shooting, an employee, who was standing outside the shop, was wounded.

No other injuries were reported and both cars sped away from the scene, police said.

Call Caddo Crime Stoppers at 318-673-7373 or visit www.lockemup.org if you have information about this shooting.
