GROVES, Texas — Police officers in Groves are investigating after a woman was wounded in a shooting at a home in Groves Friday morning.

The suspect, who is described as a Black man in his mid-30s, with tattoos, wearing a blue shirt and blue jeans, was last seen running east toward 3rd Ave Hudson told 12News by phone.
