“Investigators were able to secure video footage of the incident that detectives believe showed that Dooley did not act in self-defense,” the release said.

Detectives learned the vehicle in question did not belong to Christopher, but was instead reported stolen from Texas.

An autopsy will be performed. The case is still under investigation by the Shreveport Police Department.
