New this morning on KSLA News 12:

A chase that started just after 12:30 a.m. in DeSoto Parish comes to an abrupt end in Shreveport with the SUV, its driver's side front tire shredded, on an Interstate 49 overpass at Kings Highway and the driver about 40 feet below. We're working to find out what started the pursuit and who the suspect is that authorities have in custody at University Health. KSLA News 12's Jacob Bradford is on the scene to bring you the latest.

Two video gamers get into a fistfight in Many. When one swings at the other with a hammer but misses, he then reportedly shoots the other in the hand and continues shooting at the wounded man as he runs down the street.

A Shreveport Fire Department employee is on leave and faces a charge of simple battery after an incident with another Fire Department employee at the Shreveport Fire and Police Training Academy.
