BOSSIER CITY, Louisiana – The woman who was shot dead in the parking lot of Willis-Knighton Hospital in Bossier City had followed her accused killer after he crashed his car Wednesday night, police sources said.

Cynthia Walker, 65, of Bossier City, has been shot seven times by Ramsey Akes, 23, also of Bossier City. He is charged with first degree murder and jailed on $ 275,000 bond.

After the initial incident at Airline and Shed Road which police say occurred away from the hospital, Akes pulled his Camaro into a parking spot in the hospital’s west parking lot. Walker pulled his SUV in front of Akes’ car to block it. A woman identifying herself as Walker’s sister says she was waiting for the police.

Two police officers from the town of Bossier were nearby. They responded to the shots shortly after 7 p.m.

Lt. Bart Cavanaugh said the first officer at the scene was Jason Jenkins, who was leaving the hospital after visiting a patient during his break. A radio dispatch recording captures Jenkins reporting the shots, then calling for medics after finding Walker on the ground.

Moments later, Jenkins reported, “I’ve got the shooter. It’s going to be a road rage incident.”

Police said Akes was waiting at the scene after the deadly confrontation. A club was also found near Walker’s SUV.

A second Bossier City officer, Chad Kelley, also responded to the scene while working after hours at the hospital.

“I just applied a tourniquet,” Kelley radioed to the dispatcher as officers waited for paramedics.

Walker was rushed from the scene to the area level one trauma center at Ochsner LSU Shreveport, where she was pronounced dead.
