SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - Shreveport Police have arrested one suspect in connection with a deadly shooting in Shreveport's Mooretown neighborhood.

"We believe that he had stopped and started shooting at the victims," said Scott.
Gina Foster died at the scene and Syborio Foster was taken to University Health with non life threatening injuries.
A family member confirmed to KSLA News 12 that Syborio Foster is the grandson of Gina Foster.
"She's looking at us telling us to be strong for her," said the victim's granddaughter Diamond Sudds.
Foster's daughter Ty'Ronica Foster could barely put her pain into words.

The family says she isn't gone in their hearts.
We are going to be strong for her celebrate, and show her that she still here, she isn't going anywhere," added Sudds.
