SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

A man is dead after being shot multiple times with a rifle in the parking lot of a Shreveport store and gas station, authorities say.

The shooting happened at 1:36 p.m. Tuesday at Hollywood Mini Mart in the 3700 block of Hollywood Avenue, Caddo 911 dispatch records show.

A white Dodge Charger with dark tinted windows and a spoiler on the back was seen fleeing at a high rate of speed after the shooting, police Cpl. Marcus Hines said.

"We do not have an identity on the man who was shot. We don't know his name. Nor do we have an identity on the shooter. We are working very diligently at this hour to gather those details.

"We are asking anyone who may have seen anything to please call police immediately.

As a result of the shooting, Mooretown Elementary Professional Development School briefly was put on shelter-in-place, meaning the students could roam inside the building but were not allowed to leave.

That lockdown has since been lifted, Hines said.

There is no word as to what led to the shooting.

Authorities urge anyone with any information to contact Shreveport-Caddo Crime Stoppers by calling (318) 673-7373 or visiting the organization's website, lockemup.org.
