SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

Police have confirmed that one man is dead following a shooting in Shreveport's Cedar grove neighborhood.

Police received the call just before 11:15 a.m. in the 300 block of W. 68th St.

According to Shreveport police spokeswoman Cpl. Angie Willhite, that man went to his estranged girlfriend's home and an argument began.

Police report that man then shot three times through her front door, striking her twice before turning the gun on himself and shooting himself in the head.

The shooter was pronounced dead at the scene. The woman was rushed to University Health. Her condition is unknown at this time.

Some W. 68th Street neighbors told KSLA they heard the three gunshots go off Wednesday morning.

"I was lying in the bed and I heard three shots," neighbor Ruthie Edwards said. "My neighbor from three houses down came running and she held me and told me that this guy had shot himself in the head. He was laying down there on the ground and they was trying to revive him."

Other neighbors report seeing the injured woman as she tried to leave the house.

"When I walked over there towards the house, I seen one man laying on the ground and I seen her sit up and she was holding herself," one neighbor told KSLA.

As the woman was taken to the hospital, other neighbors remember being in shock.

"I've been staying here ever since I was a baby and I've never seen nothing like it before," neighbor Dasia Johnson said.

"This a law-abiding street. We don't have no problems over here on this street," Edwards echoed.

Some neighbors told KSLA the couples' fight actually began earlier in the morning with a chase down the next street over, W. 69th.

"He was in the car! He was in his truck and she running. She running from him!" one neighbor recounted.

This is a developing story. Stay with KSLA as we continue to gather more details, including the identities of the gunman and the victim.
