Posted: Updated:

Beaumont police are searching for a gunman as four people recover from gunshot wounds following a shooting Sunday morning.

A police spokesperson said the shooting happened around 2 a.m. Sunday in the 500 block of Edgemore Drive near College Street and 23rd Street.

The four shooting victims were taken to area hospitals.  A police spokesperson said they all suffered non-life threatening injuries.

Ofc. Carol Riley told 2News a man came home to a burglarized house and then called police to report his home being ransacked. While on the phone with dispatch, the man walked outside to approach a man in the next block who he thought looked suspicious.

Police say when the burglary victim began questioning the man from a distance, the man pulled a handgun from his waist and began shooting in the direction of a large crowd standing in the roadway.

When police arrived, two victims were laying in the road with gunshot wounds, one person was laying in a drainage ditch with one gunshot wound and one person was located in a home with a gunshot wound.

The suspect has not been located.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic male, possibly in his twenties, wearing dark clothes with a black hoodie over his head.
