Salone confronted his ex and the man, firing several shots inside the home, striking the man in his buttocks and shoulder while he attempted to escape.

He was then taken to a Shreveport hospital for his injuries, which are considered non-life-threatening.

When deputies arrived on scene, the suspect went outside and fired rounds at Caddo Parish deputies. It’s believed he possibly struck a CPSO unit.
