The parking lot argument leaves one dead, one on the run and a passerby run over by the getaway car
SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL / KMSS) – Police in Shreveport are investigating an argument early Sunday morning between two men who left a man dead, another at large and a woman injured after being hit by the getaway car.
Just after 2 a.m. on Sunday, Javoria Sherman, 26, was pronounced dead at Ochsners LSU Health Hospital, after being shot in the parking lot of a liquor store north of Shreveport less than an hour earlier.
But after an overnight investigation, police said on Sunday morning that they had now developed a suspect and were waiting for a district judge to issue an arrest warrant for her.
The investigation into Sunday’s shooting began around 1:40 a.m. Sunday, when SPD agents responded to reports of a shooting in the King’s Liquor parking lot at 4374 Hilry Huckaby III Ave. in north Shreveport.
Upon arrival, officers understood that Sherman and another man were arguing in the store parking lot when Sherman was shot. .
However, neither Sherman nor the gunman was at the scene of the shooting when police arrived.
Police later learned Sherman was found less than a mile from the shooting scene at North Lakeshore Drive and Lorraine Street, and was rushed to Ochsner LSU Health, where he was pronounced dead within minutes. only after his arrival.
In addition to Sherman’s death, there was collateral damage. Detectives say a woman in her mid-30s was in the store’s parking lot when the shooting occurred, and as she was trying to dodge the shots, the gunman crushed her in escaping.
She was taken to hospital in a private vehicle in an unknown condition.
SPD officers and detectives worked through the night and morning, collecting evidence, interviewing witnesses at the scene and also viewing surveillance video from the parking lot, which allowed them to develop the suspect in the Sherman shooting. .
Sherman’s death marks the 59th homicide in Shreveport since January 1 and the first since Wednesday night when a man was fatally shot by his brother during a money dispute in the Mooretown neighborhood.
Earlier Wednesday, a man was fatally shot ending an argument with another man in the Cherokee Park neighborhood over the city’s 57th shooting.
