Just after 2:20 pm Sunday, Shreveport Police Department was called to the corner of Erie Street and Fairfield Avenue for shots fired.
Upon arrival, officers located a 12 to 13-year-old female shot in the back. The victim was transported to nearby hospital with life-threatening injuries.
Chief Wayne Smith said, “some vehicles appeared to be in a chase with each other and at some point or another here on this street (Erie Street) shots began to rang out from the vehicles. A bullet traveled west this direction and struck a house on this corner and a female inside this residence was struck.”

“They get shot inside their house on a Sunday afternoon,” said neighbor Thomas Cochran. “We’ve got to take the city back.”
