SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - Authorities have released the identity of the man who was shot and killed in Shreveport's Cedar Grove area.

Police were called to the 300 block of West 77th St. at 9:41 p.m. Saturday on reports of a shooting.

When officers arrived, they found 31-year-old Rodney Ford suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. Ford was taken to University Health hospital where he later died.

According to the Caddo Coroner's Office, Ford was identified by family members and through fingerprints.

Shreveport police say the shooting stemmed from a heated argument between Ford and the suspected gunman, 20-year-old Dennis Upshaw.

A warrant has been issued for Upshaw charging him with a single count of second-degree murder. Bond in the matter is set at $500,000.
