Late night Sour Lake shooting sends one to the hospital

​An alcohol-fueled argument among campers sent one man to the hospital and another to the county jail.
​Hardin County Sheriff’s Deputies and Sour Lake Police Officers were called to 27385 Hwy 105 W., Sour Lake, at 10:15 pm, on July 1.
​Investigators found several camp trailers pulled onto private property where a late night fight resulted in one man getting shot, according to Sheriff Mark Davis.
​“The suspect is a 36-year-old male from Groves,” he said, “who is charged with Felony One aggravated assault with a weapon.”
​Pending arraignment the suspect’s name and mugshot will be released.
​Sheriff deputies say a disagreement among two men escalated into a physical altercation in which one man produced a .22 caliber pistol.
​“In the struggle over the firearm, the gun went off striking the victim in the jaw,” Davis said.
​The victim was transported by life-flight to a Beaumont hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. He is identified as a 35-year-old man from Batson.
​More information will be provided as it becomes available.
