Just before noon on Sunday, Jan. 5, BPD officers responded to the 800 block of Pipkin Street in reference to an aggravated assault, according to a news release.

Upon arrival, officers located a 30-year-old Beaumont man suffering from gunshot wounds in a bedroom. He and his two children arrived home and entered the residence, the victim told police, and were confronted by three black males in masks. 

One of the suspects shot the victim before all three ran out the front door. The suspects were picked by by another black male in a gray SUV, according to the release.

The victim was transported to the hospital by EMS, where he would have surgery. The children were not injured, but one of the bullets went through a neighboring home’s window. 

Preliminary investigation revealed a gun and possibly a large amount of money was stolen, according to the release, and detectives have reason to believe illegal narcotics were involved in the motive.

BPD asks anyone with information about this crime to contact Southeast Texas Crime Stoppers at (409) 833-TIPS or download the P3 TIPS app and use a smartphone or tablet to submit information. All tips are anonymous and could be eligible for a cash prize.
