GROVES — A man who was shot Tuesday night near a Gulfway Drive convenience store is not cooperating with law enforcement, authorities said.
The man police believe is the shooter was arrested on a misdemeanor charge of unlawfully carrying a weapon.
Groves Police Sgt. John Hudson said the officers were called to Yogi’s store, which is located at 6101 Gulfway Drive, in reference to a gunshot victim.
The victim claimed he was shot by a man and gave a description to police.
A suspect was located as well as a discarded handgun, Hudson said. But since the victim is uncooperative, the suspect was not charged with the shooting.
The victim sustained a non-life threatening gunshot wound to the foot.
Groves police arrested an 18-year-old Port Arthur man on a charge of unlawfully carrying a weapon.
Hudson said police believe the shooting took place two to three blocks away from the store on the Groves side of Gulfway Drive.
