SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) — Shreveport police are investigating a report of gunfire along eastbound Interstate 20.
Caddo 911 dispatch records indicate it happened about 2:54 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 27.
That’s when the Fire Department dispatched a half dozen units to a medical emergency at northbound Interstate 49 at eastbound I-20.
A blue Dodge was traveling east on I-20 when for an “unknown reason” someone shot at the vehicle, authorities were told. The car swerved into a wall, breaking off a wheel, and came to a stop between the I-49 ramp and the Common Street/Line Avenue exit off eastbound I-20.
The car’s driver and passenger were walking around when police arrived. Fire Department medics took them to a hospital for treatment of injuries that authorities said did not appear to be life-threatening.
At one point, dispatch records showed 10 police units now on the scene along eastbound I-20 near Spring Street in downtown Shreveport. That number now stands at five.
This is a developing story and will be updated as more information becomes available.
