    MOSCOW (Sputnik) - At least five people were injured in a shooting in Shreveport, Louisiana, KSLA reports.

    "We were responding this evening to traffic congestion and during that congestion, numerous shots were fired and there are a lot of victims that were showing up at different hospitals", a Shreveport police spokesman said late Sunday, as aired on KSLA.

    According to KSLA, a total of five people were injured in the shooting, which occurred on Hearne Avenue at 9:02 p.m. local time on Sunday (02:02 GMT on Monday).
