[ARCHIVED] May 24, 2016 - Overnight two injured and one dead

Shreveport Police are investigating an overnight shooting which left one man dead, two others injured, and authorities searching for answers.

Just after 8:20 p.m. on May 23, 2016, Shreveport Police patrol officers were called to the 1900 block of Legardy Street relative to a reported shooting. On officer's arrival at the scene, they discovered an adult male victim had been shot and killed on the scene there. While securing the scene of the shooting, officers were notified that two other men, previously present on Legardy Street that evening, arrived at area hospitals suffering gunshot wounds. Authorities have identified the deceased victim as 55 year old Michael L. Hamilton of Shreveport. The two other shooting victims were identified as 33 year old Erion Hamilton and 24 year old Zackery T.Winn; both of Shreveport. The surviving Hamilton and Winn suffered non life-threatening wounds to the head and leg respectively and are expected to recover.

Shreveport Police investigators arrived at the scene of the crime, immediately launching an investigation into the matter. Authorities believe Hamilton was standing in a yard in the 1900 block of Legardy Street when he was fatally shot in the midst of an exchange of gunfire between at least two groups of individuals. Investigators are still working to establish the extent of Hamilton's involvement in the shooting, if any. Authorities believe the incident began when three suspects arrived in the 1900 block of Legardy street in a stolen Ford pickup truck and engaged in verbal exchange with persons standing in the front yard of a home in the same location. During the exchange of words, weapons were produced by both groups and a subsequent exchange of gunfire erupted. It is believed Erion Hamilton and Zackery Winn were injured during this exchange. The roles of both men in the shooting remain under investigation. Following the barrage of gunfire, all involved parties fled the area, leaving the stolen vehicle on scene. Multiple shell casings were recovered from the scene; however no weapons were seized. At current investigators are working feverishly to determine the persons responsible for this crime. Persons with any information are asked to contact Crime Stoppers at (318) 673-7373 or visit their website at www.lockemup.org
