Just prior to 11 p.m. on Monday, February 10, 2020, an officer patrolling the neighborhood observed what appeared to be gunfire coming from a vehicle. When the officer initiated a vehicle stop, the driver failed to pull over, fleeing from police.  

During the pursuit, police dispatchers received a call reporting the shooting. The suspect vehicle was stopped in Shreveport on Clyde Fant Parkway beneath the Jimmie Davis Bridge. Shreveport Police assisted.

 Bossier City police and fire personnel responded to a shooting at a residence in the 1900 block of Alison Avenue. When they arrived, police located Adrian Carradine, 20, of Bossier City, with a gunshot wound to the chest. Carradine was unresponsive and transported to LSU Ochsner hospital. He later died from his wounds.
