A care-flight helicopter — which had to land in the parking lot on the other side of Clarksville Street — flew Jajuan Rosheen Minter to a Dallas-area hospital to evaluate and treat his injuries.

“Paris Police are still investigating this shooting that was reported at about 7:18 p.m. on Sunday,” Paris Police department spokesman Curtis Garrett said.

According to a resident at Spanish Oaks, the man was shot on the eastern side of the apartment complex.

Authorities initially reported that despite receiving multiple gunshot wounds, Minter was released from the hospital after receiving treatment.

Tuesday afternoon, Garrett said a hospital spokeswoman told him the earlier report was incorrect. Minter was moved to another Dallas-area hospital to receive further advanced treatment, the hospital spokeswoman said.

Alert and conscious, the victim advised officers that he did not know who had shot him, Garrett said.

With little details from the victim about the shooter, Paris police continue to investigate this shooting and encourage anyone that has any information regarding this case to call the Paris police department at 903.784.6688.
