A man accused of shooting an 8-year-old bystander during a gunfight in a south Beaumont neighborhood remains at large 10 days after his young victim was wounded. Jefferson County Sheriff’s Deputies Thursday said they want the public’s help finding Jocoby Vontoure, 22, of Beaumont.
Police charged Vontoure with two counts of aggravated assault. They say he and another man were in an ongoing argument that ended with the two exchanging shots in the 1300 block of Pipkin Street. Officers believe one of Vontoure’s shots hit the child.
Anyone who knows where officers can fine Vontoure is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 409-833-8477.
