Two wounded in residential shooting

GREENVILLE — Two people were wounded and a total of four people were taken into custody Wednesday as the result of a shooting in Greenville and a brief chase in Hopkins County.

According to a report from the Greenville Police Department, officers were dispatched at around noon Wednesday to a call of a shooting at a residence at 2503 Broadview Street.

Upon arrival, the officers were told a single victim had been taken by private vehicle to the emergency room at Hunt Regional Hospital with a wound to his arm.

Witnesses said two men, one white and one black, had entered the residence and the black male shot the victim.

The two men then fled the scene in a blue extended-cab Dodge truck. Officers expanded the search and broadcast descriptions to all surrounding law enforcement agencies.

While searching for the suspects near the Hunt/Hopkins County line, Officer Robert Pemberton learned deputies with the Hopkins County Sheriff’s Department had stopped the vehicle in question after a short pursuit.

At least one occupant of the truck ran from the vehicle. Hopkins County Sheriff’s deputies and Texas Department of Public Safety troopers performed a ground search of the area and were able to locate the suspect and take him into custody.

All three occupants of the vehicle were reported in custody as of  Wednesday evening.

The identities of the individuals had not been released, pending the filing of charges in the case.

As a result of the investigation into the shooting, a 28 year-old white female was arrested at the residence for possession of a controlled substance.

At around 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, a second alleged victim of the shooting arrived at the hospital in Greenville by private vehicle with a gunshot wound to the leg.

The identities of the victims involved and the motive behind the shooting had not been released as of press time Wednesday.

“We are grateful to the Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office and the Texas Department of Public Safety for their assistance with this investigation,” said Greenville Chief of Police, Daniel Busken.
