SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - Shreveport police are working to know more about an incident where a man was grazed by gunfire.

Dispatchers got the call around 1 a.m. on the morning of Friday, Oct. 7 in the 1000 block of Dudley Drive - in the Lakeville Townhomes community.

The victim told police he was in his vehicle when three other men approached him. The trio then pulled the victim out of his vehicle, and eventually, the victim was grazed by a bullet.

Police said he refused treatment at the scene.

Shreveport mayoral candidate Dr. Julius Romano says he heard the shooting while inside his home.

“I was quick to react and call the police. They were here [the police], I saw the lights and then they stayed here until four o’clock in the morning I think. I couldn’t sleep, there was lights everywhere. I hoped that no one was hurt. Then this morning I woke up and found blood on the car,” he said.

Romano showed a KSLA crew the damage on his car from the shooting.
