Shreveport Mayor to have surgery

Shreveport Mayor Cedric Glover expects to undergo surgery this week after a fall outside a Caddo Parish elementary school on Wednesday, October 3. Rod Richardson, Director of Communications for the City of Shreveport, gave the update to a crowd at the Louisiana Film Prize award ceremony Sunday afternoon. Mayor Glover is still recovering at a Shreveport hospital from last week's fall. An MRI showed the mayor tore tendons in both of his quadriceps. Richardson did not specify how much longer Mayor Glover would be hospitalized, but did say he expects the surgery to happen in the middle of this week.
