Shreveport Police Officer shot

Chief Shaw just identified the officer as Sgt. Tim Prunty.  He was gunned down outside a Circle K store where he was standing outside talking to the manager.  A car pulled up, a man got out and shot Officer Prunty. 
Sgt. Prunty died at the hospital.

Details are sketchy. Channel 3 reports that the SPD officer is was shot at a convenience store in West Shreveport.
Chief Willie Shaw will have a news conference at 8AM.
We will update this as soon as information is available.
The officer was taken to LSU Hospital, where KTBS reports that he is fighting for his life.
