Teen injured in Vivian shooting


A 19-year-old Vivian man is recovering from a gunshot wound after an altercation with another teen Tuesday night, said Sheriff Steve Prator.

The incident took place just before 7 p.m. in the 1400 block of South Pardue Street in Vivian. Keshawn York was hit in the buttocks by gunfire and was taken to Ochsner LSU Health for treatment.

Sheriff’s Det. Vincent Jackson said that York and a 16-year-old boy were originally in the 200 block of East California where they got into a fight over social media posts. York produced a gun, and it discharged as the two fought over it. No one was hit. The juvenile fled to his home in the 1400 block of South Pardue where York came looking for him. York was asked to leave by an adult, but he returned to the juvenile’s house a second time where he found the juvenile outside with other family members. York fired multiple times toward the 16 year old.  The 16 year old retrieved a gun and fired back at York, striking him once. 

The case remains under investigation. Caddo Fire District 8 and the Vivian Police Department also responded to the call.
