SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) — Shreveport police are investigating a shooting that sent at least one person to the hospital with a gunshot wound to his abdomen.

Authorities said his wound did not appear to be life-threatening.

They were summoned to a Burger King restaurant on Hearne Avenue at 5:18 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 6, according to Caddo 911 dispatch records.

One person could be seen being loaded into an ambulance there.

He ran into Burger King stating that he had been shot by someone who had been chasing him through the parking lot, according to the major incident report. The wounded man also hid a backpack in the restaurant that later was found to contain narcotics, cash and a handgun, the report adds.

Detectives were told that the gunman’s vehicle was a blue car. Otherwise, the gunshot victim became uncooperative with police.

Police say he was shot somewhere on the parking lot then ran to Burger King for help.

Dispatch records show a half dozen police units and one Shreveport Fire Department unit are on the scene between Grassmere and Glenwick streets.

This is a developing story and will be updated as more information becomes available.
