Several police cars were parked outside the medical center in Shreveport on Wednesday morning.

Police say they're trying to find someone who shot a man in the leg early Wednesday at a hospital in the Louisiana city of Shreveport -- a search that temporarily closed the facility to new arrivals.

A gunman shot a man at Ochsner LSU Health -- St. Mary Medical Center around 5:30 a.m. CT, Shreveport police Sgt. Angie Willhite told reporters.
Police believe the shooter was Taniel Cole, 41, and were trying to find him Wednesday morning, Willhite said.
    The wounded man "is going to be OK," and was taken to a different hospital for treatment, according to Willhite.
    Officers were searching "every nook and cranny" of St. Mary hospital for Cole, but they weren't sure whether he was still there, Willhite said.
    "There is the chance that he could have gotten out of the building before we arrived, or since we've been here," Willhite said Wednesday morning.
