Man shot when he confronts guest in estranged wife's house
SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - A man was shot when he confronted his estranged wife's friend in her home early Sunday morning.
Police say 31-year-old Jock Hines was shot once in his abdomen just before 5 a.m.
Investigators think he removed a window air conditioner to get into his estranged wife's residence in the 2900 block of Amherst Street.
Hines allegedly then entered the room where she and her friend were sleeping and began chasing the man.
When caught by Hines, the man reportedly pulled out a handgun and shot Hines once.
Authorities said the gunshot wound did not appear to be life-threatening.
Gunfire such as that is not new to the neighborhood, said Tynekqua "Nene" Warren, who lives just down the street.
And Warren said each time she hears gunshots, she has the same thought. "That we need to leave like now. Get out of here."
In fact, Warren said, they're moving in the next month to someplace a bit safer.
"I don't like to be out all the time. I don't come out at dark for sure. During the day, when it's hot, I'm out here. But when it cools down, I'm in the house."
Warren is not alone.
But that has not stopped Donna Anstead from living in the 2900 block of Amherst for the past 25 years.
"My house is paid for; I'm not going anywhere."
Another woman, who did not want her name used, said she won't soon forget one shooting in particular.
Bullets pierced her home as she slept.
"It was scary. Wake up and hearing all those shots."
