Man injured in apartment shooting

A Shreveport man is recovering after he was shot late Tuesday evening in west Shreveport.

Just before 11 p.m., Shreveport police officers were dispatched to a reported shooting at an apartment complex located in the 7200 block of Bernstein Avenue.

When officers arrived, they found 25-year-old William Ardison suffering what appeared to be a grazing gunshot wound to the head.

Ardison’s injuries were considered to be non-life-threatening, and he was transported to a local hospital for treatment.

Officers at the crime scene were able to gather information suggesting the victim and a group of acquaintances were sitting outside of an apartment when at least two males with coverings over their faces approached the group armed with handguns and demanded money.

It was during that time that an exchange of gunfire transpired between the would-be robbers and the group of men seated outside the apartment.

Following the exchange of gunfire, the two masked suspects fled the scene of the crime on foot.

No other injuries were reported.

Shreveport police violentcrimes investigators arrived on the scene at the apartment complex and launched an investigation.

Authorities are now working to develop leads in the case that will lead to the identification and arrest of the persons responsible for this crime.

Anyone with any information about this crime is urged to contact Caddo Crime Stoppers at 673-7373 or visit their Web site at www.lockemup.org.
