Bay City police investigate two shooting scenes Sunday; one person dead, two are wounded

One person has died and two others were wounded in two shooting incidents Sunday, Dec. 13.

Bay City police said they don’t believe the two occurrences were related.

In the first incident at 4:23 a.m. Sunday, Corporal Marino Chavez was on duty in the area of Roberts Road and heard what he believed to be multiple gun shots.

He notified dispatch and asked whether they received any calls.

Dispatch indicated they were receiving calls from the area of 1521 Whitson.

Chavez said he was only a couple of blocks away and would go to that location.

As Chavez turned onto Whitson, he saw several vehicles driving away.

He was flagged down and told there was a man who needed help.

Chavez was directed to a man laying on the ground later identified as Terrance Williams.

There were two people conducting CPR on Terrance, police reports show.

Chavez notified dispatch of the situation and took over performing CPR.

Officers continued CPR until EMS arrived and took over.

While EMS was with Williams, another disturbance broke out and officers separated them.

At that time, officers were told one person in the second altercation was shot during the first altercation.

Officers observed a second victim to be bleeding from his leg.

The second victim refused treatment by EMS and was transported to a hospital by private vehicle.

Detectives were called to the scene.

Officers were later notified that Terrance was deceased.

The second victim was treated and released from the hospital.

This case is under investigation while detectives conduct interviews.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to contact Detective Stephen Lunsford or Sgt. Chris Hadash.

The second shooting incident occurred

shortly after 6 p.m. Sunday, and officers were sent to the 3200 block of Avenue D, where they were told a person had been shot.

When officers arrived, they went to the victim, who was bleeding from his shoulder area, reports show.

Officers applied pressure to the wound until EMS arrived.

The victim told officers he was sitting in a vehicle in the driveway when someone in a black car drove by and fired a shot that struck him.

The victim was taken to Matagorda Regional Medical Center by EMS and later transported to Houston.

Due to patient confidentiality, the hospital will not release an updated patient status.

At this time, it does not appear that these cases are related.

Anyone with information on this second case is asked to contact Detective Corporal Robert Pierce or Sgt. Chris Hadash.

Detectives can be reached at 979-245-8500.
