SHERMAN, Tex. – It is the third time in a week that authorities in our area have investigated an incident involving an air gun. This time a victim was shot in the head, and Sherman Police are still looking for the man responsible.
The call came into police around 6:00 Wednesday night, after the victim was taken to the hospital. But finding the suspect could be difficult because police say the victim is not cooperating.
Officers say four people were in a car on First Street in Sherman when an argument started. That's when one person was shot with a pellet gun between the eyes.
Police believe the victim got out of the car in a driveway and the suspects fled. Sherman Police Lieutenant Bob Fair says the victim was taken to the hospital and treated for his injuries.
“We will do what we can to investigate and find out what went on in this incident. If appropriate, we will file charges, and the state can take over and file charges."
Police are still talking to witnesses, but so far, no arrests have been made.
In the past week, school officials in Ardmore and Gainesville have investigated incidents involving air guns. No one was hurt in either of those situations.
