Jasper Police were busy investigating a shooting on the east side of town late Monday evening. It happened shortly after 10:00 at the Hope Village Apartments at 700 Pollard Street, and officers arrived to find the victim, suffering from at least one gunshot wound a block away at the corner of Pollard and Graham Streets.

Police Lieutenant Garrett Foster said the victim, who was later identified as Dominique Elam, 28 of Jasper was taken by ambulance to Christus Jasper Memorial Hospital, where he was treated for a gunshot wound to the upper shoulder.

Foster said even though the investigation into the incident was continuing, that so far, Elam was refusing to tell officers who shot him or give any other details concerning the incident.
