Officials investigating shooting

POLAND -- Officials are currently investigating a shooting that took place Sunday evening.

According to Clay County Sheriff Mike Heaton, deputies were dispatched to the Poland area Sunday for the incident.

"We're working a shooting right now," Heaton said. "There was an altercation of some sorts. We're still trying to figure it out, how it happened and what started this whole deal."

According to Heaton, shots were fired from a residence off Private Road 375 N, near County Road 700 E, near Poland.

The shots were fired at a vehicle and, according to Heaton, it was not known at press time what type of weapon was used.

One man was taken to St. Vincent Clay Hospital. Heaton said it was believed the man was shot in the facial area.

"Right now, we're still piecing everything together," Heaton said. "We do have subjects detained, but no one is under arrest at this time."

Heaton said officials were interviewing five persons of interest.

"We have multiple people to interview," he added.

"it was believed the man was shot in the facial area."

"Right now, we're still piecing everything together," I am sure it was not said together...LOL
