SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) _ A uniformed police officer in Shreveport has been fatally shot as she was preparing to go to work on the night shift. 
A police spokesman in Shreveport says it happened shortly before 8:30 p.m. Wednesday outside a home.
Cpl. Marcus Hines says one person has been detained for questioning but has not been charged with a crime.
Hines spoke as the officer was taken to a hospital and did not identify her.
