Police looking for suspect who shot local woman


Detectives are working to apprehend a teenager they believe to be responsible for shooting a woman in west Shreveport late last month.

Just after 10 p.m. on June 26, Shreveport police patrol officers responded to a reported shooting in the 6700 block of Buncombe Road.

Upon arrival, officers found 23 -year-old Jessica Bernard suffering from a gunshot wound to the torso.

She was subsequently transported to University Health Center by fire department personnel with serious but non-lifethreatening injuries.

Based on information and evidence gathered during their ongoing inquiry, investigators believe that Bernard and two other individuals were engaged in a transaction involving the sale and distribution of illegal narcotics when the suspect, identified as 17-year-old Eudarrius Gooden, fired shots at the group, ultimately striking Bernard.

Authorities obtained a warrant for Gooden’s arrest, charging him with one count of aggravated second-degree battery.

His bond is set at $50,000. Anyone with any information about this shooting or the whereabouts of Gooden is urged to contact Shreveport-Caddo Parish Crime Stoppers at 673-7373 or on their Web site at www.lockem up.org.
