Jasper Police are investigating a deadly shooting that occurred shortly before 5:00 Wednesday evening on the north side of town.
Police say someone apparently knocked on a wall or door at a mobile home in the 1300 block of North Bowie Street and when the occupant of the home went to look out of a window, someone shot him through the window with a shotgun.
The 19-year-old male victim was rushed by ambulance to Christus Jasper Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced dead a short time after arrival.
Police sources say a vehicle, described as a maroon Mercedes Benz SUV, was located in the 900 block of Avenue A about two hours after the shooting. Sources also say that two suspects were found in the vehicle and detained for questioning. Meanwhile, a third suspect reportedly turned himself in a short time later.
The name of the victim has not been released pending notification of next of kin.
