Man Is Shot After Road Rage Altercation in Shreveport Parking Lot
My Friend Happened Upon a Scary Situation on Saturday.
I was on the phone with my friend when she and her daughter drove up to a very busy parking lot. Not because Saturday is a popular day to get some grocery shopping done, but because a man had been shot in the Uptown Shopping Center. She claimed there were cops everywhere and several reporters were driving in.
One Man Was Taken Into Custody and the Other Was Taken to the Hospital.
This road rage incident started elsewhere but it ended in the parking lot of the Uptown Shopping Center. Lieutenant Peter Darcy Darcy told KTBS 3 that both men are 60 years old. Darcy claims that the altercation escalated after the victim got out of his vehicle, approached the other car, and began "banging on the driver's window, trying to get him to get out of the vehicle." Darcy went on to tell KTBS 3 that "It appears that person inside that vehicle shot from inside the vehicle and hit that victim was hammering on his window to got out of that car, ".

According to KTBS 3, this window took the brunt of the bullets force. The victim was shot with a .45 caliber handgun and he is expected to make a full recovery. The driver who shot the angry driver was taken into custody for questioning.
