Two violent crimes in a matter of days have plagued Shreveport's Queensborough community. City leaders and citizens have teamed up in the past to put an end to the crime. But has it been enough?
City Councilman Sam Jenkins along with Commissioner Joyce Bowman wants the public to know they're still fighting to put an end to crime.
you all remember the community meetings held earlier this year. Neighbors say the meetings did make a difference,
but eventually crime started back up again.
The most recent shooting took place Tuesday night in the 3000 block of Darien Street. 19 year old Earnest Henson was shot once in the arm.
Neighbors told investigators they saw two groups of men exchange gun fire. No arrests have been made. One neighbor who doesn't want to go on camera says this is an ongoing problem.
In June a three year old was struck by a stray bullet while inside a home on Darien Street. In September a grocery store owner was shot multiple times at his business on Alabama street.
Five shootings have been reported to police in 2012. However folks living in the area believe that number is higher, but too often people don't report the crime to police.
