The victim and the suspect involved in the shooting from Monday evening knew each other, the Denton Police Department said.

Police are still looking for the suspect, but declined to give any information on him.

UPDATE: Tuesday, August 8, 1:30 p.m.

The investigation is still ongoing for the suspect in the apparent drive-by shooting that occurred Monday evening, the Denton Police Department said.

Police have identified the victim, but are not releasing his information at this time. Denton PD spokesman Shane Kizer said they expect the man to live.

Monday, August 7, 10 p.m.

A suspected drive-by shooting roughly half a mile northeast of the Denton Square left one man hospitalized Monday night, Kizer said.

Denton Police first received a call about the incident at 6:40 p.m. when a Jaguar crashed into a fence surrounding Massey Auto Sales Service & Parts on Mingo Road next to Backyard on Bell.

The driver, a male in his 20s, crashed his vehicle after sustaining multiple gunshot wounds and was transported to Medical City Denton.

He is currently still in their care.

According to a press release from the Denton PD, both the victim and suspect’s cars were heading west on Mingo Road. The suspect fled the scene after the incident.

Kizer said a witness saw two cars next to each other, either stopped or moving slowly before the incident occurred. The details surrounding the altercation are still unknown.

“We are still trying to get information on the suspects,” Kizer said.

This story is developing.
