Shreveport, Louisiana

From Shreveport's of April 15, 2004:

Armed robbery ends in homicide

An attemped armed robbery ends in an exchange of gunfire, and the suspect has been found dead.

Shreveport investigators say a man walked into the F&D Food and Liquor Store on Ford Street Wednesday night, waving a gun, then jumped over the counter.

A witness says the store owner, Mike Zedan and the suspect started wrestling. The suspect fired, shooting Zedan in the shoulder.

That wasn't the end of it, though. Zedan fired back several times as the suspect fled the scene.

The suspect, now identified as Michael House, was later found dead in the backseat of a car on Dunlap Street.

Detectives aren't sure if there was a second person in the car who might have run off and left him to die.

Detectives say House may have been connected to several other armed robberies in the city.

Zedan was taken to LSU Hospital for treatment.

His brother Mike says this is the second time Zedan has been shot during an armed robbery since they've owned the store.
