Big Spring police are searching for suspects they believe were involved in the Friday afternoon shooting of a Big Spring man.
Dijuan Ausbie, 22, was listed in stable condition after being shot three times during the altercation, police officials said late Friday.
Sgt. Tony Everett, public information officer for the Big Spring Police Department, said officers responded to a call about a shooting victim in the 800 block of Lorilla at 5:30 p.m. Friday.
After arriving on the scene, they found Ausbie lying in the roadway. He had been shot three times â€” twice in the chest and once in the back â€” Everett said.
Ausbie was transported to Scenic Mountain Medical Center, where he was stabilized and flown to a Lubbock hospital. His condition was listed as stable late Friday, Everett said.
The initial investigation revealed that numerous male subjects were in a verbal altercation when someone fired shots from a handgun, he said. Several 9 mm bullet casings were found at the scene.
Further details into the shooting were not forthcoming, due in part to uncooperative witnesses, Everett noted.
â€śWitnesses were reluctant to provide details and, at this time, no arrest has been made,â€ť he said Friday evening. â€śNo motive has been established. It is unclear at this time if the shooting is gang-related, but the possibility has not been ruled out.â€ť
