DENISON, Tex. -- Denison Police are still looking for a gunman who shot a man several times in broad daylight Wednesday afternoon nearly 24 hours later. Now officials are asking for citizens to step up if they know anything.

The shots rang out around 12:15 p.m. Wednesday in the Perrin Estates subdivision just east of the airport.

Lt. Mike Eppler of the Denison Police Department says the initial call came in concerning a man at the Longhorn Convenience Store at Highway 691 and FM 1417 that had been shot.

"So far it appears like its going to be an isolated incident. The victim had multiple gun shot wounds and was flown by air ambulance to a Dallas area hospital."

The victim was shot twice, once in the arm and once in the chest, but somehow got away. Officials say the victim was able to get into a blue car and drive to the store to call for help shortly after he had been shot.

The victim is still in critical but stable condiiton at a Dallas hospital.

Now, police are looking for the person responsible and a motive for the shooting. Police said Thursday they do not have a lot of details and have not released a description of the suspect.

"We’re in the process of finishing up the crime scene at the residence at McArthur and trying to generate some leads and follow up on some leads to try and identify the suspect," Eppler said Wednesday.

Officials say the suspect fled on foot. Now Denison Police are in the process of following up on leads and continuing the investigation.

In order to determine what exactly happened inside the home at 27 B McArthur, and because the suspect is still at large, police need your help.

"We've got a few but as far as motive at this point we don’t have any. We're certainly looking to solicit information from anyone who has any information about this incident. Please give me a call at the police department because we'd like to talk to you," Eppler said Wednesday.
