Officers responded to that address after a report of shots fired. There, they learned that numerous vehicles and suspects were involved in a disturbance in which two Beaumont men were shot.

Both victims went to Baptist Hospital by private auto, with wounds that were not life threatening, police said.

Detectives later arrested Blue and were continuing to investigate the incident Wednesday, although they said suspects, victims and witnesses were providing little cooperation.

They said anyone with information should contact the Beaumont Police Detective Division, 409-880-3830 or the Southeast Texas Crime Stoppers at 409-833-TIPS.
