Late Sunday, five people arrived at a local hospital after being shot in Shreveport, Louisiana, CBS state broadcaster KSLA reported.
She added that 21 police units arrived at the scene after reporting firing on Hearn Street.
This incident comes hours after another similar event in Texas, where US authorities said that at least three individuals were killed Sunday in a shooting incident in Austin.
Austin Police stated that their officers were deployed “at the scene of a shooting incident” in the northwestern section of the city.
The Austin-Travis County Emergency Medical Services Department said that “three injured adults” had died at the accident scene, which was reported shortly before noon.
“No other injured have been reported,” the department added in a tweet on Twitter, about an hour after the incident was reported.
Police advised residents to stay away from the area.
