Grambling police are asking for the public’s help in solving a Wednesday afternoon shooting that left one man dead.

Eric Richardson, 28, of Grambling, was apparently getting ready to leave his residence on Harris Street for work when a conversation he was having with an unidentified Black male ended in gunfire, Grambling police Chief Tommy Clark, Jr., said.

Police think robbery may have been a factor in the homicide, Clark said.

The incident happened about 4:30 p.m. That’s when GPD received a 911 call in reference to multiple gunshots fired in the 100 block of Harris Street.

Officers arrived to find Richardson unresponsive and lying near his idling vehicle. He had several gunshot wounds to his upper torso. Emergency medical personnel tried to revive Richardson, but he was pronounced dead at the scene by the Lincoln Parish Coroner’s Office.

Clark said investigators discovered personal valuables missing from the victim indicating robbery may have been an issue in the shooting.

GPD is asking anyone with any information about the crime to contact the department at 318-247-3772, or their local law enforcement agency.

They can also contact Crime Stoppers at 318-255-1111. Callers remain anonymous and are eligible to receive a cash reward of up to $2,000 if the information given leads to an arrest or grand jury indictment.
