Man Leads Police On Chase Through Shreveport

Police search for a possible shooting suspect - By Chris Redford

The search for a possible shooting suspect has been scaled back. Shreveport police scoured a wooded area on the city's west side after the man took off running Wednesday night.  

The suspect reportedly led officers on a high speed chase before ditching his car and running behind the old marina on Mansfield Road.

It all started when officers spotted the suspect near Greenwood and I-20.  The suspect is said to have waved at the officers before speeding off.

Authorities say the chase ended when the suspect lost control of his car, spun out then got out and ran.  He's said to have jumped a barbed wire fence before disappearing in a wooded area behind the vacant business.

Investigators have not said which shooting the man is believed responsible or if the man is even the suspect in question.

Here’s an interesting thought. Why is it that Louisiana and neighboring state Mississippi are always on the bottom of every national ranking involving virtually every aspect of a state’s quality of life? Yet casino gambling is widespread throughout both states at a level not found any place else in America outside of Las Vegas.

On April 28, citizens of Shreveport face a choice: Fund basic city services or plunge the city into fiscal chaos. It would have been inconceivable 20 years ago that routine tax renewals to fund the fire and police departments and other basic city services would not have the collective support of the city’s business, civic and political leadership.
