SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - Shreveport Police are looking for a woman who opened fire on a man's car over a parking spot at a Shreve City retailer Sunday.

The shooting happened in broad daylight Sunday morning around 11:30 at the Walmart Supercenter in Shreve City.

According to police, the male victim was backing out of a parking space when a maroon colored, four-door Pontiac Grand Prix attempted to pass around him. In the attempt to pass, the Grand Prix narrowly missed the man's vehicle, setting off an argument between the man and the two females in the car.

During the argument, one of the women got out of the Grand Prix, brandished a firearm and fired several rounds into the man's vehicle before getting back into the car and fleeing the scene north toward Shreveport-Barksdale Highway.

Luckily no one was injured.

"This was extremely unusual and obviously bold.  We're talking about a crowded parking lot, a Wal-Mart that does a lot of business.  To fire a shot and to be so reckless as to fire shots in that area, it begs the question of what that person was thinking at that time.  Clearly, we want to get this person behind bars where they belong," said Bill Goodin with the Shreveport Police Department.

Detectives are working on getting surveillance footage of the shooting. The shooter is described as a black female, weighing about 150-160 pounds, 5'4" - 5'6", dressed in all black with short hair.

Anyone with information is asked to call Caddo-Shreveport CrimeStoppers at 673-7373 or Shreveport Police Detectives at (318) 673-6955.
