(Press Release)

On Sunday, just after 2:30 a.m., officers responded to the 1800 block of Buddy Holly Avenue in reference to shots fired in the area. Shortly after officers arrived on scene, they were notified a gunshot victim had just arrived at University Medical Center.

After questioning multiple people, it appears two groups of people got into a physical altercation in the area 900 18th Street. Once the fight was broken up, one group got into a vehicle to leave. Officers were advised a person in the other group then fired multiple shots at the vehicle.

A back passenger in the vehicle was struck by a bullet, and the driver took him to UMC.  The 25-year-old male victim had serious, but non-life threatening injuries.

Officers were unable to locate the group of suspects at the scene.

This case remains under investigation.
