SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) — Shreveport police are investigating how a bullet-riddled car wound up in a shopping center parking lot.

That’s where they found a sedan with what appeared to be several bullet holes on the passenger side of the front windshield.

A man was in a car on Summers Street near Dowdell Street when someone fired at the car, police Cpl. Marcus Hines said.

Summers at Dowdell is about a little more than three miles southwest of the parking lot where the bullet-riddled car was found.

“He drove away and ended up over at Shreveport-Barksdale Highway and called authorities,” Hines explained.

The police spokesman initially said the man had received a minor bullet graze wound to one of his arms and was not taken to the hospital.

“Just been updated that the victim was not shot but injured by flying glass,” Hines said about two hours after the shooting was reported.

Investigators have not yet identified a suspect, he said.
