Shreveport Police are investigating a stabbing that claimed the life of a local man Wednesday morning.
According to SPD Cpl. Marcus Hines, it happened at a home in the 7400 block of Glen Leaf Lane before 10 a.m.
Officers arrived to find 60-year-old Louie Cobb suffering from what appeared to be a single stab wound to the chest. Cobb was taken to University Health Shreveport, where he was later pronounced dead.
An adult female, who police have not identified, was taken in for questioning.
Based on preliminary information and evidence gathered at the scene, Cpl. Hines says investigators believe Cobb was injured during the course of a domestic dispute with the woman.
Hines says detectives are now working in conjunction with officials from the Caddo Parish District Attorney's Office regarding the potential of criminal charges. The investigation is still underway.
