COLLEGE STATION, Texas (KBTX) - One person has been treated at a local hospital for a gunshot wound, and police are asking the public for information on the incident.

College Station police say shortly before 1 a.m. Monday morning, an individual arrived at St. Joseph Health - College Station Hospital with a gunshot wound described as minor. On Monday, police said the victim’s condition is stable.

Officers responded, beginning an investigation into the possible aggravated assault. They discovered that the injury-causing gunfire was reported to have happened outdoors in the 1600 block of Stallings Drive around 12:40 a.m.

Mike Thomas recently moved to College Station and says he was outside on the porch with a friend when he heard gunshots around 1 a.m.

“We heard three gun shots, or what sounded like gun shots from up the road, pretty close, sounded like small caliber,” said Thomas.

Thomas adds that he then heard a car peel out near the gun shots. It is something he says he can’t believe he witnessed after living in the area for only a week.

“It concerns me because I do have a 16-year-old that stays with us from time to time,” said Thomas.

His friend Aly Strenja says it was a scary experience.

“It is definitely eye awakening, it could have been closer,” said Strenja. “I was out here smoking a cigarette and it could have been a ricochet, so it is definitely unnerving.”

Police say the incident is under investigation, but they do not believe the public is in danger at this time. Police do not report a suspect in custody in connection with the shooting. Anyone with information is asked to call CSPD at (979) 764-3600.
