BOSSIER CITY, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – A Shreveport man is charged with attempted murder after police say he shot his girlfriend at a local hotel on Christmas Eve and then called to report it as an accidental shooting.
Officers were called to the Extended Stay Suites on Gould Drive off Old Minden Road in Bossier City just before 12 p.m. Thursday for a report of a shooting and arrived to find a woman who had been shot in the chest.
The woman was taken to a local hospital.
Police say 41-year-old Brandon Stewart claimed the shooting was an accident, but investigators say they interviewed him and several witnesses and discovered during the course of their investigation that the incident stemmed from a domestic situation.
Stewart was arrested and charged with attempted second-degree murder. He has since been transferred to the Bossier Maximum Security Facility, where he remains held on a $300,000 bond.
