Man shot by police remains in intensive care in Shreveport

Posted: Updated:

The man arrested for murder on General Patton Street is still the intensive care unit of a hospital in Shreveport. Timothy Dangerfield was shot by police when he allegedly refused to put down his gun. At last word police said Dangerfield was expected to survive.

Dangerfield was transferred to LSU Medical Center in Shreveport-- not long after he allegedly killed a 22 year old woman and was then himself shot by police. At last word Dangerfield was still in the intensive care unit. He was shot by police after allegedly threatening officers with a gun and refusing to put down his weapon.

Police say he also had a self inflicted knife wound that was very serious. Dangerfield was wounded multiple times when two Lake Charles police fired at him in an incident on Tulip Street.

State police are investigating the police shooting of Dangerfield to assure an independent evaluation of their use of potentially deadly force. As in all such incidents the officers who fired shots at Dangerfield are on administrative leave until the internal investigation is complete.

Dangerfield allegedly killed Shacerista Jones Thursday night at a house on General Patton Street.

Police spokesman deputy chief mark Kraus says when state police finish their investigation they will submit it to the district attorney's office for review.
