DENISON, Texas (KTEN) — Denison police are investigating after two people were shot Thursday evening in a neighborhood near the 700 block of West Murray Street.

Police located a gunshot victim the intersection of Mirick Avenue and Heron Street at 5:40 p.m.

Investigators said a car crashed into a utility pole a short distance away at Murray Street and Barrett Avenue, which they believed to be connected.

As the first victim was taken to a local hospital; police were told a second victim was already at the hospital.

"This is my neighborhood," said resident Keith Jones. "Anything goes on, I'm going to get in the middle of it. I've lived here for 53 years. The reason I came up here is to see if I could help; that man had to have been shot in that car. I knew he had to have been."

Police did not confirm if the person in the car was one of the two who were treated for gunshot wounds.
