One of the victims in the Jan. 22 mass shooting in Shreveport has died.

The Caddo Parish Coroner's office confirms Latounda Bryant, 33, died at 11:40 a.m. Jan. 26, at Ochsner LSU Health where she was taken following the shooting.

On Jan. 22, just before 2 p.m. the Shreveport Police Department was called to the 1600 block of Sugar Lane on reports of a shooting.

Officers located seven people inside the residence suffering gunshot injuries. Three of the seven victims were juveniles under the age of ten. The four adults were women between the ages of 30 and 60.

All victims were transported to a local hospital. While at the hospital it was determined that two of the victim's injuries were life-threatening.

A male arrived at the hospital more than an hour later advising he was present at the home and injured during the shooting. His injury was described as a very minor graze wound.

Detectives learned from eyewitnesses that a dark-colored SUV pulled up in front of the residence and multiple subjects exited the vehicle and fired at least 40 times into the home.

The coroner’s office said, “Bryant's death marks the fifth homicide in Caddo Parish and Shreveport to date in 2023.”
