A Thursday morning shooting at Helm Lane Apartments is under investigation by the Sulphur Springs Police Department. Criminal Investigator Detective Sgt. Bo Fox gave preliminary information to KSST News. He said a white male showed up at Hopkins County Memorial Hospital with a gunshot wound and was being treated for the wound at the time he spoke with News Director Don Julian. Fox said investigators were speaking with several witnesses and subjects regarding the incident. The victim was in stable condition and able to talk to investigators at the time of the interview. Fox expects the victim to be able to provide insight into the motivations behind the shooting that occurred somewhere around 9 a.m.
Collecting evidence and interviewing witnesses was the focus of the investigation at midday Thursday but Fox said they “may be coming to the public in the near future” for suspect information.
