VIVIAN, La. (KSLA) — The Caddo Parish Coroner’s Office has released the name of the man killed in a double shooting in Vivian Sunday night (Sept. 10).

C’Aundre Anderson, 21, was shot and killed outside his home in the 700 block of North Hickory Street in the northern part of the parish, the coroner’s office says. Anderson was able to run into his house after being shot. He was pronounced dead on the scene.

His death marks the 63rd homicide in the parish in 2023. An autopsy has been ordered.

The Caddo Parish Sheriff’s Office says Anderson’s 22-year-old brother was also shot during the incident. Responding officers found him inside the home suffering from a gunshot wound to the chest. A family member called 911. Officials believe both men were shot outside the house. The surviving brother was initially taken to a hospital in the parish, but was later airlifted to a Shreveport hospital for further treatment.

Medical personnel from Caddo Fire District 8 and North Caddo Medical Center were summoned to an EMS event on North Hickory Street at 9:26 p.m. Sunday, Caddo 911 dispatch records shows.

Two minutes later, at least three Caddo Sheriff’s Office units responded to a report of a shooting at the same location. That number later swelled to at least 15.
