SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - The alleged Hurricane Chris shooting victim is identified as 32-year-old Danzeria O. Farris, Jr., according to the Caddo Parish Coroner’s Office.
The incident happened around 1 a.m. on Friday, June 19 at a Texaco gas station in the 2600 block of Hollywood Avenue.
Farris was allegedly shot by well-known rapper Hurricane Chris, also known as Christopher Dooley, 31.
Dooley made claims of self-defense after an alleged struggle over his vehicle.
However, Shreveport police investigators reviewed video footage from the incident and believe Dooley did not act in self-defense.
After the shooting, Farris was transported to a Shreveport hospital where he later died from his wounds.
An autopsy will be performed. The case is still under investigation by the Shreveport Police Department.
