Two Injured, One Charged in Early Morning Shooting

Shortly after midnight Saturday morning, Shreveport police officers responded to the 2900 block of Penick in reference to two males who had been shot. A Yellow Checker Cab advised they went to the Cajun Inn Hotel and picked up Luther Mcduffy, along with two black females and they requested to be driven to a vacant house directly across from 2921 Penick. The cab driver stated Mcduffy and one of the black females got out of the cab and walked up to the vacant residence where several subjects were standing around. That’s when the cab driver said he heard gunfire and saw muzzle flashes. The cab driver thought two subjects were shooting. The crowd near the vacant house quickly scattered, leaving both Mcduffy and Randy Bennett shot in the yard. Both were transported to LSUMC with multiple gunshot wounds. Mcduffy advised investigators that he went to this location with the two black females but did not give a reason why. Upon approaching the house he stated that the subject he shot, Bennett, attempted to rob him and they exchanged gunfire. Two different caliber shell casings were recovered at the scene along with cash. Bennett told investigators he was walking down the street when some guys started shooting and he got shot. Bennett was taken into surgery but both he and Mcduffy wounds are considered non life threatening. Bennett faces one count of Attempted 1st Degree Homicide.
