Investigators are trying to piece together the situation that led to a 24-year-old Big Spring man being shot in the leg in the 800 block of N.E. Eighth Street Friday morning.
Nicholes Limon was treated at the scene by emergency medical personnel and transported to the emergency room at Scenic Mountain Medical Center shortly after the shooting was reported at 10:25 a.m.
According to Sgt. Tony Everett, public information officer for the Big Spring Police Department, Limon was found in an alleyway between N.E. Eighth and N.E. Ninth streets when officers arrived on the scene.
Howard County commissioners are expected to discuss and decide how to move forward â€” or if to move forward at all â€” with bids recently received for a parcel of property located on the north side of Big Spring during Monday morning's meeting.
The property â€” located near the County Road and Bridge Office on the north side of the city â€” has received a lot of attention in the past few weeks, as several real estate investors have shown a strong desire to acquire the county-owned half-block.
