SHREVEPORT - Shreveport police detectives are investigating a shooting involving a security officer at the Shreveport Regional Airport.

Police say patrol officers responded to the airport just before 10:15 p.m. Tuesday after receiving a call about an airport security officer firing his gun.

At about the same time, police received a call from a cab driver reporting that a security guard had shot out a tire on his cab.

Police say no one was injured.

Cpl. Marcus Hines says detectives believe there was some sort of dispute between the cab driver and an on-duty security officer.

Hines says the airport employee was placed on administrative leave with pay as the investigation continues.

Police did not identify the officer or the cab driver.
