Georgian Traveler Shot After Asking for Directions

Officials say that a Georgian tourist who was lost and stopped in Louisiana to ask for directions was shot while he was there.

The woman’s three kids were in the car when she honked her horn to get help after the shooting, the Caddo Parish Sheriff’s Office wrote in a Facebook post on April 8.

Now, sheriff’s deputies are looking for a man who they say shot the woman during an attempt to rob her.

The scary thing happened in the Shreveport area on West Dr. Martin Luther King Drive. Deputies said the woman and her children were driving from Atlanta to see family when the mother got lost and got out of the car to ask for directions.

The sheriff’s office wrote, “That’s when the man tried to rob her with a gun.” “The woman said that when the gunman shot her in the arm, she ran away right away.”

The woman got away and drove to an apartment complex nearby, where she honked her car horn until someone came to help her. Officials say that she was taken to the hospital with injuries that did not seem to be life-threatening and that her children were not hurt in the shooting.

The investigation is still going on, and anyone who knows anything about the case is asked to call the deputies at 318-675-2170.
