An investigation is underway by Shreveport Police detectives following a standoff at a Shreveport apartment complex Monday evening.
Just after 8:23 p.m., on August 5, 2019, Shreveport Police patrol officers arrived at the Cedar Creek Village Apartments located in the 3500 block of Cedar Creek Drive. Officers were responding to report of shots fired inside an apartment building. As officers gathered additional information on scene, it was alleged that a 26 year old white male had fired a rifle inside an apartment and subsequently barricaded himself inside a room within the apartment. Moments later, it was believed the man began to set fire to items inside the room, causing a smoke detector to sound. Fire crews from the Shreveport Fire Department arrived on scene within minutes to extinguish the fire; however initial efforts were stalled due to the volatile situation unfolding inside the apartment.
