One man is in the hospital another is in jail after a shooting at a party in Jasper.
Jasper Police Chief Robert MacDonald says 34-year-old Ricky Allen Mitchell of Jasper left the party in the 300 block of East Childers Street after a fight broke out early Wednesday morning but later returned and tried to force his way inside.
Chief MacDonald says Mitchell and 18--year-old Joshua Turley of Jasper got into a struggle over a shotgun. The gun went off and hit Mitchell in the upper shoulder.
Mitchell ran from the scene but collapsed a few blocks away. He is still recovering at Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston.
Turley was arrested and is expected to be charged with aggravated assault.
