One dead, 3 injured in apartment shooting

SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - A shooting at Old Salem Village apartments has left one person dead and three people injured.

Officers were called to the scene after reports came in of gunfire.

Police say two males exchanged gunfire in the parking lot of the complex, with approximately 40 gunshots being fired.

The incident started over a YouTube video that caused tension between a group of children. Threats are said to have been exchanged between parents and adults over the children’s behavior, resulting in the shooting.

Police say a 23-year-old was shot in both of his legs and has since been pronounced dead.

Additionally, three others were sent to the hospital with injuries.

Police say one of the victims was a child (11) and their father, who were inside their apartment eating pizza when bullets came into the residence and hit them.

One victim is believed to have been shot in the left side and the ankle.

The child is said to have been shot in both arms and is not involved in the YouTube incident.

A wounded individual, believed to be one of the shooters, is said to have ran around the building, collapsed and later died at the hospital.

The fourth victim’s injuries are not known at this time.
