SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) — A man, woman and child were injured in a shooting Tuesday, Aug. 31 at West 84th Street at Wyngate Boulevard in Shreveport, authorities say.

“We have yet to determine if all of them were gunshot wounds or if it’s broken glass fragments,” Assistant Police Chief Jay Barlow said.

None of their wounds appeared to be life-threatening, he added.

Twenty shell casings could be seen on West 84th.

The woman and child were in a private vehicle when they showed up at Ochsner LSU Health seeking treatment. Caddo 911 dispatch records show their arrival at the hospital was reported to police at 4:41 p.m.

The Hyundai sedan had gunshot damage — what appeared to be three or four bullet holes in the windshield and no rear window.

An injured woman and child showed up at a Shreveport hospital after a shooting at West 84th at Wyngate, near where a wounded man was found.

Dispatch records show police were summoned at 4:32 p.m. to investigate a shooting at West 84th at Wyngate.

They found a wounded man in a Chevrolet sedan in a parking lot on Valley View Drive just off Mansfield Road. Police believe he drove there after the shooting.

West 84th Street turns into Valley View Drive at Wyngate Boulevard.

Police now are processing two vehicles.

And they say they have detained one person for investigative purposes.
