This evening, around 7:30 PM, our officers responded to numerous 911 calls of a subject shot in the 2000 block of Oak Creek Drive in Jefferson. First responding officers located the body of a white male subject lying in the driveway of the Oak Creek Apartments at 2001 Oak Creek Drive. He was suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. The victim, an 18 year-old, who is not being identified at this time, was transported to University Hospital where he is listed in critical condition with possible life-threatening injuries.
A witness reported seeing two subjects standing in the street inside of the apartment complex. Immediately following what was believed to be a gunshot, one of the subjects fell to the ground and the remaining one fled on foot.
Homicide investigators have yet to establish a motive, nor, have we identified any suspect(s); however, based on information gathered at the scene, this incident is believed to be drug related.
Anyone with information in this matter is asked to contact our homicide division at 364-530 or CRIMESTOPPERS.
