Shreveport Woman Arrested After Tense Standoff
On Wednesday (10-26-22) police were called to the Queensborough neighborhood to serve out a warrant. Upon arrival, the woman in question locked herself in a home and refused to come out.
After some time of trying to contact the woman to get her to come out, the woman began firing shots from the home.

Thankfully no one was hurt during the gunfire. This is an ongoing investigation. This article will be updated as more information is forthcoming.
