The city of Shreveport, Louisiana is terrified this morning after three or four masked gunmen stormed a tire shop and opened fire, killing two people before escaping. They are still on the loose at this time.
According to Daily Mail, the masked gunmen interrupted a card game taking place at the shop. The deceased victims have been identified as Elton Wayne Madison and Leatrick Benjamin, both 37. Six others were injured in the shooting, and two of them were seriously wounded. The other four have already been released from the hospital.
Police have not yet found a motive or ascertained whether or not the shooters took any money.
“We don’t know if there was an exchange of gunfire or not. These guys came in and started shooting. No one reports they shot back,” said Cpl. Marcus Hines. “We didn’t find a gambling shack and money all over the place. It wasn’t that kind of scene. We found people shot and suspects gone.”
LaGwen Hill, 63, told the Shreveport Times that she had just gone to bed when she heard the gunshots.
“It just kept going on,” she said. “I thought it was fireworks at first.”
