Corpus Christi, Texas — Two different shootings took place around 10:30 pm last night, prompting Corpus Christi police to respond to two separate scenes.
Late Friday night, there was one shooting at Buccaneer Apartments on 100 Buccaneer Drive. Police officers believe it may have been caused as a result of a robbery attempt. The complex is opposite the Corpus Christi Doctors Regional Medical Center.
After several phone calls by police, an 18-year-old man was dropped off at the Doctor’s Regional Medical Center for treatment of his wounds. They did not comment on the nature or number of times he was shot, but said the victims are now in a stable condition.
Another shooting took place in the downtown area of Morgan Street. According to police, the shooting arose from the debate. The victims of this shooting are also in a stable condition according to CCPD.
“Usually, shooting requires a lot of police to secure the area, secure witnesses, and get information,” said Corpus Christi Police Lieutenant Braden Tuckett. “With that number in that short time frame, we pull officers from one scene to the next, and from different areas of the town. Yes, it’s a bit difficult. But we do. Do things very quickly, keep things safe, help victims, and collect information to help resolve the case. “
The investigation is still underway. As it evolves, we will continue to post more information to you.
