5 Adults And 3 Children Were Shot In A Shreveport Residence

On Sunday afternoon, five adults and three kids were shot inside a Shreveport home. Two individuals are in critical condition. A woman who was shot in the eye and a 3-year-old boy who was struck in the chest are two of them.

There are also two little toddlers among the injured, ages 3 and 5.

At 1:59 pm, the firing began. The event took place on Sugar Lane on Sunday, January 22, in the city’s Martin Luther King Jr. district, according to Caddo 911 dispatch data.

Police Chief Wayne Smith speculates that it might have been a drive-by shooting.

The police chief said, “Based on the quantity and distribution of shot casings found at the scene, there is little doubt that someone intentionally targeted that residence. At least 40 empty shotgun shell casings from two separate firearms were located at the intersection of Sugar Lane and Northside Road.

The police chief stated that the rounds were mostly aimed at a living area and a bedroom.

The authorities haven’t released a lot of information regarding possible suspects. However, they do believe they are looking for a black pickup.

The police chief emphasised his ferocious anger toward anyone trying to hurt someone else, but in especially toward anyone who would carelessly fire into a home.

Smith said, “We are doing everything we can to get weapons off the streets and out of the hands of individuals who do things like that.” Smith referenced the shootings on Sugar Lane, early Sunday morning in Baton Rouge, as well as a recent incident in California.
