Police were on the scene and residents were baffled when shots rang out at the Meadowbrook Apartment complex on Paluxy in South Tyler.  "I was inside of my house and watching TV, and I heard some shots," Rebekah Murray said. "I was thinking, just some more shots going on, then I thought I heard someone screaming, help." 

Rebekah said she later cracked her front door open and heard cries for help.  She said she was in the right place at the wrong time.  "There was a young man there--a man that got shot in the stomach," she said.   "He didn't want me to let go of his hand."

Police said two other men were also shot--one, the young man's father, was shot in the chin, and the third was shot in the leg, after an altercation took place.  All three victims were taken to ETMC, with non-life threatening injuries. 

Officer Don Martin with Tyler Police said the suspect fled the scene, but a possible suspect was being interviewed.
