Man injured following Cherokee Park shooting


Shreveport Police Department

A local man is recovering from minor injuries following a shooting in Shreveport’s Cherokee Park neighborhood.

Just before 10 p.m. Wednesday, Shreveport police patrol officers were dispatched to the 800 block of Navajo Trail in reference to reports that a man had been shot near a wooded area next to an apartment complex.

When officers arrived, the victim, identified as 20-year-old Jimmy White, was seen suffering from what appeared to be two gunshot wounds to the lower extremities.

White was transported to University Health Center in Shreveport for what were described as non-life-threatening injuries.

Violent-crimes detectives and crime scene investigators launched an inquiry into the matter and began collecting evidence.

Preliminary investigation suggests White was shot during a physical altercation which involved several males at a nearby home in the 800 block of Navajo Trail.

Authorities are working to gather additional information about the case as well as to identify and apprehend the suspect in the shooting.

Persons with any information regarding this crime are urged to contact Caddo Parish Crime Stoppers at 673-7373 or online on their Web site at www.lockem up.org.

One million dollars down the drain to pay for a special session of the Louisiana legislature. And all for naught. The governor is hollering that the financial sky is falling and the state is in dire fiscal straights. Legislators protest that their hands are tied by too many constitutional dedications.

It was much to my amazement that literally hundreds of Ukrainian girls were actually interested in me. Throughout each day, I would receive e-mails from the agency, with each e-mail sending a message from a woman interested in dating me.
