A woman and her 1-year-old baby girl are wounded in an early morning shooting in Shreveport. It happened on Barbara Avenue just off of Greenwood Road and Pro Street in the Country Club area.
Police Corporal Angie Willhite tells KEEL News the shooting happened at about 3:30 this morning. The mother and her baby were asleep in bed when someone opened fire on the house. Both were hit in the leg and both are expected to survive.
We spoke with Corporal Willhite about this crime earlier today.
