Yoakum police are searching for a person suspected of shooting a 41-year-old man at his home Tuesday night.
At 9:54 p.m. Tuesday, authorities received a 911 call reporting a shooting at a home at 111 E. Hochheim St., said Police Chief Karl Van Slooten.
There, they found 41-year-old John Strait injured with gunshot wounds.
Strait was treated by Yoakum emergency medical service and then airlifted to Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio in critical condition.
Van Slooten said the shooting was the result of a family dispute but declined to go into detail because the investigation was still in its preliminary stages.
“We need to protect the integrity of the investigation,” the police chief said.
Investigators have identified a suspect and criminal charges are anticipated, Van Slooten said.
Wednesday, authorities were still searching for that suspect, and no arrests have been made, he said.
Van Slooten said he did not think nearby residents should worry about any continuing danger because the shooting appeared to be an isolated incident.
