BEAUMONT, Texas — Beaumont Police officers are investigating a late Tuesday night shooting that left five people wounded at an apartment complex in the south end of the city.

The shooting happened shortly before midnight. Beaumont Police went to the Lamar Landing Apartments in the 3500 block of South MLK Jr Parkway after learning multiple people were injured during a shooting.

When officers arrived they found two victims. One victim had non life-threatening injuries.
