Shreveport police are investigating two shootings that happened within minutes of each other in the city’s Stoner Hill neighborhood.

Officers were called to the first shooting late Saturday night just before midnight in the 100 block of Egan St.

Police say a possible second person began firing shots at Okray hitting him once in the upper left shoulder. 

The second shooting happened Sunday morning just before midnight in the 400 block of Egan St.

Police say 31-year-old Ashley Polk was in the home when she was hit by a single bullet from a passing vehicle in her neck.

Both victims were taken to University Health hospital and are expected to recover.
