Shooting at Bass Pro Shops in Bossier City
An early-morning shooting in Bossier City leaves a 35-year-old man wounded.
At around 6 a.m., police arrived at the parking lot of Bass Pro Shops in Bossier to a report that shots had been fired. About 45 minutes later, Lester Milton arrived at Willis Knighton North with a gunshot wound to the right bicep.
Milton told officers he was leaving Margaritaville Casino with an unidentified white female, when he pulled into the parking lot of Bass Pro and was approached by a white male, who fired three or four rounds inside the Milton's vehicle. Milton drove to a relative's house in Shreveport, then to the hospital. He was treated for a non-life-threatening wound and later released.
Detectives are reviewing surveillance video from the casino and checking out the crime scene. The suspect is described as a 6', 200-pound white male believed to be in his mid- to late-20's. He was wearing a light-colored shirt and blue jeans.
