Man fatally shot outside store; police seek car seen fleeing the scene

SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) — A man died after being shot in his chest area in Shreveport.

Now police are looking for a white, 1980s Oldsmobile Cutlass that has two doors and appears to have been well-kept, police Cpl. Marcus Hines said.

The homicide occurred at 8:46 p.m. Wednesday at Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Drive at Russell Road, Caddo 911 dispatch records show.

Police have cordoned off an area outside Rite Way Daiquiris Liquor & Beer in the 1700 block of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Drive.

“It appears that it was just between those two individuals” and occurred outside the store, Hines said.

The victim was near a motorcycle just before he was shot, the spokesman said.

The wounded man was taken by ambulance to Ochsner LSU Health, where he was pronounced dead.

The suspected gunman last was seen headed west on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Drive, Hines said.

The man was stocky, had short hair or was bald and was wearing a white T-shirt.

Authorities urge anyone with any information about the homicide to contact Shreveport-Caddo Crime Stoppers by calling (318) 673-7373, visiting the organization’s website, lockemup.org, or using the P3 Tips app.

The nonprofit pays cash rewards for information that leads to the arrest of the individual or individuals responsible for crimes.

This is a developing story and will be updated as more information becomes available.
