BREAKING: Man Wounded In Officer Involved Shooting
A man has been seriously injured after being shot by a Shreveport Police officer early Friday morning.

Officers made contact with the driver and pulled him over near Drexel and Thornhill. At this point, an officer engaged the man and there was some sort of exchange. The officer then shot the suspect several times.
Corporal Marcus Hines told KTBS it is unclear exactly what led to shooting and an investigation into the matter is on going.
