According to a release from the Nacogdoches County Sheriff's Office (NCSO), a man has been arrested for a shooting that occurred early Saturday morning in Central Heights.  The shooting has left two men in critical condition at a local hospital.

According to the report, Sheriff's Deputies responded this morning (9/12) shortly before 1:00 am to a shots fired call at a convenience store in Central Heights. Deputies found two victims at the scene; one victim had been shot nine times. The other victim was shot one time in the chest. The suspect had already fled the scene before law enforcement arrived.

Deputies learned of a possible suspect in the case that was later found at an apartment complex in Nacogdoches. With the assistance of the Nacogdoches Police Department, the suspect was located and was taken into custody a short time later.

Brian Keith Martin, 21, from Nacogdoches was arrested on two counts of Aggravated Assault with a deadly weapon and booked into the Nacogdoches County Jail.

The Sheriff’s Office has identified two possible motives for this shooting. More details will be released later this week. This is an ongoing investigation.
