ORIGINAL STORY>>> LSP: Man critically shot in altercation with SPD reportedly seen on surveillance loading weapons into car

A man identified as Charles Nathan Anthony, 32, of Shreveport, was shot during the incident. LSP says Anthony was seen on his parents’ surveillance system loading weapon into a car. That’s when they called 911. As Shreveport Police Department officers tried to pull him over as he was leaving the neighborhood, they say he got out of the car and pointed a gun at officers.

Anthony was shot by officers and remains in critical condition.

LSP detectives are handling the investigation.

The homeowners are disturbed that a bullet hit their home and thankful no one was home at the time of the shooting. They say it’s frightening to think that a few inches to the left and the bullet would have been inside the house and could have been much worse than replacing a window.
