NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - Detectives with the Nacogdoches Police Department are seeking the public's help in finding the suspect or suspects responsible for a shooting incident late Tuesday night that resulted in injuries to a man, a woman and a 4-year-old boy.

According to a press release, NPD officers were dispatched out to a Nacogdoches emergency room in reference to gunshot victims. When they got to the ER, they learned that a vehicle that had been traveling west in the 1800 block of Douglass Road across from the Nacogdoches ISD Plant Service building had been fired on by the occupant of another vehicle.

The preliminary investigation revealed that the car containing the two victims was driven by a man. In addition to the woman, two children, ages 4 and 2, were in the car, too. According to the press release, they were approached by another vehicle, possibly a gray Pontiac, that was also heading west on Douglass Road.

The press release stated that suspects in the gray car opened fire on the first car, striking it several times. The woman was hit in the upper chest and the boy was hit in his leg. The driver of the first car suffered a superficial wound to his arm that appeared to be from a gunshot, according to the press release.

The driver of the car sped the woman and the boy to Nacogdoches Memorial Hospital's emergency room for treatment, and the man didn't need medical treatment. According to the press release, the 2-year-old was not injured in the shooting incident.

Police blocked off access to the section of Douglass Road from the 1000 to the 1800 block Wednesday as they searched for evidence. Police are still looking for the shooter or shooters.

A woman in a nearby residence heard the gunshots.

"I heard gunshots, really, really fast. They went, chu, chu, chu, chu and then, 'boom, boom, boom' and I could count them," said Joanne Fromann, 20, who lives near where the shooting incident occurred. There was like four booms and six gunshots."

Fromann said even though the crime happened so close to her home, she's not scared because the Lord is with her.

Nacogdoches PD detectives believe a handgun was used in the shooting incident. Six numbered circles on Douglass Road marked where evidence was found. Two-tenths of a mile down the road near the intersection with Jordan Road, five more markings indicate where other shots were found.

The target was a Chrysler 300, which is now locked up at the Nacogdoches Police Department. Several bullet holes were visible on the driver's side of the car, and others could be seen on its rear end.

 In addition to the physical evidence at the scene, NPD detectives have interviewed the two adult victims to see if they know of anyone who would want to harm them.

"I hope those two people come out alright, and they catch whoever it is," Fromann said.

Anyone with information about this case is urged to call Nacogdoches Crime Stoppers at 560-INFO or send a tip on the web at www.ncstips.com. All information is confidential and you will never be asked your name.
