SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) — A man was wounded in a shooting that resulted in a sedan crashing into a building near a major intersection in Shreveport’s Cedar Grove neighborhood.

The accident at Line Avenue at East 70th Street in Shreveport was reported at 3:41 p.m. Monday, Aug. 2, Caddo 911 dispatch records show.

A woman was in the car with the man. It’s not immediately clear whether she was hurt in the accident.

The man and woman both were taken to the hospital.

Police initially dispatched 10 units to an accident and another to a shooting at that location.
