These shootings come on the heels of a weekend shooting that took the life of a 13-year-old girl in Shreveport on Sunday. A rolling gun battle in the city took the life of Landry Anglin while she was in a home on Fairfield Avenue. The young woman was struck and killed by a bullet that entered the home and struck her.
