Port Arthur Police investigate shooting


Officers with the Port Arthur Police Department are investigating a shooting that happened just after 4 p.m. at the Carver Terrace Apartments located at 1400 DeWalt.

The shooting victim told witnesses that he and his girlfriend were in the process of moving out of the apartment building when a man approached him and began pulling at the victim's hair.  The victim broke free and noticed the man had a gun, so he tried to run from the gunman.  This is when the shots were fired.

The victim was grazed in the ankle, but he and his girlfriend were able to drive to the intersection of Gulfway Drive and Lake Charles where he called for help.

The victim was taken to Christus Hospital St. Mary.

The victim said he did not know the shooter and had no idea of a motive for the shooting.

Police have made no arrests.  Investigators say the victim refuses to cooperate.
