Caddo coroner identifies man who died after shooting in southwest Shreveport
His death is the 40th homicide this year in parish, and the 39th in Shreveport for 2022
SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) — Shreveport police are investigating a shooting that sent at least one person to Ochsner LSU Health in life-threatening condition. He eventually died from his injuries, police sources said.
Late Tuesday, the Caddo coroner’s office identified him as 28-year-old D’Shaundre Harris, of Shreveport.
Harris died at 9:14 p.m. Monday at the Shreveport hospital after being shot several times during an argument just after 7:30 p.m. the same night in the 8900 block of Walker Road, the coroner’s office reports.
An autopsy has been ordered.
The coroner’s office says his death is the 40th homicide this year in Caddo Parish and the 39th in Shreveport for 2022.
Officers were summoned to the 3000 block of Salem Drive between Hedges Drive and Melody Lane at 7:35 p.m., Caddo 911 dispatch records show. That’s where officers found Harris with multiple gunshot wounds.
Up to 11 units responded to that location.
Police have since determined the shooting occurred in the area of the Dollar General in the 8900 block of Walker Road. That’s just hundreds of yards from the Salem Drive location where the wounded man was found.
Police tape could be seen cordoning off part of the parking lot at the Dollar General. In the parking lot is a car with what appears to be a bullet hole in the front passenger window. The police spokesman said it’s believed the shooting victim was in that car at some point in time.
This investigation is ongoing.
