At approximately 2:44 a.m. Sunday, Beaumont officers responded to 1658 Glasshouse in reference to a shooting victim.

Upon arrival officers located Jacoby Jackson, a 25-year-old Beaumont man, deceased in the roadway from an apparent gunshot wound.

Another victim, a 20-year-old Beaumont man, was taken by private auto to Christus St. Elizabeth with non-life threatening gunshot wounds.
