SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - Yet another family is speaking out after one of their loved ones was caught in the crossfire during a shooting in Shreveport.

Charlene Northcott is the mother of Pamela Rose, who is the partner of Harry Grissom.

Grissom was shot in the head while at a bar on Wall Street on Saturday, May 29. Northcott says Grissom was in town for his youngest daughter’s graduation at Caddo Magnet High School. He has four children in all, she says.

Northcott says the family went out for dinner and drinks the night Grissom was shot. She says he was opening the door to the bar for her when they heard three shots, and he was hit in the head.

Her daughter called for help after she realized the bullet hit him in the head.

“They heard three gunshots and he hit the ground, and she thought he was teasing and playing a joke on her but when she realized that it was no joke, she was screaming for help and all of the bystanders around reached out to help her,” she said.

Not only a father of four, Harry is also a biker and described as a fun person. Now instead of celebrating a young woman’s future, his family is worried about him.

“I’m extremely angry that it was Harry, and they don’t have a suspect as of yet,” she said.

Right now, Grissom is in critical, but stable condition, Northcott says.
