At approximately 6:50pm Wednesday evening, a reported shooting on CR 2665 near FM 787 in North Liberty County sent the victim, Bradley Jones, 27 to a hospital in Livingston by Liberty County EMS with a superficial gun shot wound to his left shoulder. The wound is non-life threatening.
According to Jones, who has no permanent address, he was walking down CR 2665 when three subjects stopped alongside him and started a conversation. After a brief conversation, the driver of the vehicle pulled a small caliber hand gun and shot Jones in the left shoulder. The three men then fled the scene in a brown Toyota pick up truck traveling towards FM 787.
Deputy Ranson Martel said Jones was unable to give a description of any of the three subjects in the vehicle nor does he recall what their brief conversation was about. Dep. Martel is attempting to locate witnesses in the area that might be able to add anything that might assist in this investigation.
