Seymour Police Seeking Information on Shooting

Seymour police are looking for information after a shooting Monday.

According to the police department, officers were called to the 900 block of Oak Street at about 8:07 p.m. in the evening after a person was reportedly shot in the chest. The injured person then left the scene. Police learned that the shooting victim had gone to Schneck Medical Center but also left there before police arrived. Police found the person near Brown and Chestnut streets but the victim was uncooperative with officers.

Eventually family members took the person to Columbus Regional Hospital, where they refused to cooperate with staff and left against medical advice.

Police say that investigators worked at the scene of the shooting to gather evidence and interview witnesses. This is still an active investigation although there is no conclusion yet on whether this involved criminal activity.
