COLLEGE STATION, Texas (KBTX) - College Station police are investigating a shooting Tuesday evening that occurred at a city park.

Police say someone was shot just after 7:00 p.m. at John Crompton Park near Marion Pugh Drive and Holleman Drive. Sources tell News 3′s Rusty Surette the victim was shot in the arm and has been taken by ambulance to a hospital.

Currently, there’s a crime scene also set up at an apartment complex in the 800 block of Marion Pugh.

A KBTX viewer says gunshots were heard in the vicinity and then someone was seen running in the parking lot of the complex. She said that shortly after the shots were heard, they could hear “a bunch of sirens.”

We have a crew on the scene gathering more details. It’s unclear if police have a description of a suspect or if anyone is in custody.

If you were involved or know what happened, College Station police ask you to please call (979) 764-3600.
