One person was injured in a shooting at an apartment complex in Nacogdoches Tuesday night.

NPD spokesman Sgt. Brett Ayres said investigators are still trying to determine a motive and find who was responsible for shooting an 18-year-old male at the Eastwood Terrace apartments shortly after 9 p.m. Tuesday.

Ayres said the victim suffered a single gunshot wound to the lower leg and was in stable condition at a local hospital.

Officers were dispatched to the complex in the 3000 block of E.J. Campbell Bvld. in response to a report of shots heard in the area. The victim, whose name was not being released as of Wednesday morning, went to a local hospital where investigators met him later, Ayres said.

Ayres said it was unclear what type of firearm was used in the assault.
