SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -
A Shreveport restaurant worker is recovering after she was shot by a patron Saturday afternoon.
The incident happened at the Waffle House restaurant in the 6100 block of Financial Plaza around 3:00 p.m. Saturday.
"Look at the big picture, we're very fortunate no one else was hurt worse than what we ended up with or killed," said Sgt. Bill Goodin. He calls the case rare in that most attackers are known by their victim.
Officers were told that a man identified as Alan Ferguson, 56, pulled a gun after placing his order and started shooting. While customers and employees started fleeing the building, an employee, Judith Spann, was hit in the left arm by a bullet. She was transported to University Medical Center to be treated for non-life threatening injuries, police said.
"Detectives have determined that they can't connect him to anybody - employee or guest, that was in the restaurant at the time of the shooting," said Sgt. Goodin.
Investigators say Ferguson fled the eatery on foot and was taken into custody a short time later near an apartment complex in the 6800 block of Raspberry Lane.
A preliminary investigation found that Ferguson might have been intoxicated at the time of the incident. He was agitated about personal issues upon entering the restaurant, detectives said.
Police have found no link between Ferguson or any person at the business at the time of the shooting.
Ferguson was booked on a single count of attempted first degree murder.
