UPDATE: Sept. 1, 2015 at 6pm:
A 22-year-old Shreveport man was the target of a shooting after having words with another man near the GSU campus. Tuesday night police are still looking for the shooter.

Grambling Police report that around 8:30 Tuesday morning they responded to the 200 block of Louisiana Highway 150 for a report of shorts being fired at a vehicle near the public works parking lot.

The driver, 22-year-old Thomas Quentin of Shreveport had words with another man who pulled a firearm causing Quentin to leave the area.

Quentin drove to the Grambling Public Works parking lot. That's when police say the suspect arrived in a Crown Victoria and fired multiple shots at Quentin's vehicle.

The shooter fled in his vehicle, but lost control and crashed in Ruston. That's when witnesses say the shooter ran off into a wooded area.

During a search by land and air, the suspect was not located. Anyone with information on the suspect's whereabouts is asked to contact Grambling Police at 318-247-3772.

Quentin's car was damaged in the shooting, but no one was seriously injured.
