SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) — A teenager was shot multiple times while being chased by two males in southwest Shreveport, authorities said.
More than a dozen police units responded to a report of gunfire at Ridgewood Middle School in the 2000 block of Ridgewood Drive about 6:42 p.m. Tuesday, May 4.
Two minutes later, Fire Department medics were dispatched to a medical emergency nearby on West Bert Kouns Industrial Loop between Blom Boulevard and Baird Road.
Authorities said the teen was seen running from two males who were chasing him. They then went inside the pool area at Castlewood Apartments, a complex in the 2000 block of West Bert Kouns that is next to the school.
The males shot the teenager four times in his abdomen, police said. He was taken to Ochsner LSU Health for surgery on life-threatening injuries.
Police said surveillance video leads them to believe the shooters escaped in a white SUV.
No information about a possible suspect has been released.
