SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - A man is recovering after he told police someone kicked in his door and shot him Sunday night.

It happened just after 10 p.m. in the 500 block of Fuller Street.

From evidence gathered at the scene and information from witnesses, detectives learned that 56-year-old Greg Edwards and his girlfriend were asleep inside of their home when they heard a noise at the front door.

Police say shell casings were found near the front entryway of the house.

Edwards was taken to University Health hospital with what police describe as non-life-threatening injuries.
