A local woman is recovering from injury Thursday night after being shot following an alleged argument in Shreveport's Sunset Acres neighborhood.

Just after 5:00 p.m., Shreveport police were called to a home in the 6000 block of Bowie Street in response to a woman who had been shot. 

Wen officers arrived at the home, the victim was identified as Dorothy Johnson, 54.

Johnson, who was conscious upon the arrival of first responders, had an apparent gunshot wound to the upper body.

Johnson was rushed toto a local hospital after her injury was considered to be potentially life-threatening.

Authorities on scene launched an investigation into the shooting and soon learned that Johnson had been shot while standing inside her home by a stray bullet.

It is believed the bullet that hit Johnson entered her home during the course of an argument between two men that began at a medical office building located in the 5900 block of Mansfield Road.

During the alleged argument, the two men reportedly exited the medical office building, armed themselves and exchanged gunfire.

Shreveport Police Detectives have detained a man in connection with the shooting however; the extent of his role in the incident has not been fully determined at this point in the investigation.

Details surrounding the shooting are still being unearthed at this time as investigators seek to identify and apprehend the person or persons responsible for this crime.

Anyone with any information about this crime is urged to contact Caddo Crime Stoppers at (318) 673-7373 or on their website at www.lockemup.org
