Port Arthur woman shoots naked man after he enters home without permission, cops say

A naked man was shot in Port Arthur after he entered a woman’s home without permission, police said.

On Monday at approximately 1:05 p.m., the Port Arthur Police Department received a 9-1-1 call in reference to a shooting at Avery Trace Apartments (4101 Highway 365).

Officers arrived and found a male at the scene who sustained a gunshot wound to his lower extremities.

Investigation revealed this male approached an apartment while completely nude and knocked on the door. A female occupant opened the apartment door and the male walked in without permission.

“The occupant of the apartment discharged her weapon, striking the male subject,” Det. Mike Hebert said. “The male subject’s injuries were non-life threatening and he was transported to a local hospital for treatment.”

Hebert said no arrests were made and the case is being turned over to the Jefferson County District Attorney’s Office for review.
