CLAY COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - We are learning more about a Sunday morning shooting in Clay County.
It happened around 12:30 a.m. at 5131 W SR 340.
When police arrived on the scene, they said people approached them saying James Hill was inside the house with multiple gunshot wounds.
Hill was taken to the hospital, where he underwent surgery for three gunshot wounds. Hill is currently in stable condition.
Witnesses told police an altercation happened between Hill and another person.
Police are not identifying the other person involved at this time.
Now you may remember, one person was shot and killed at a home in the same area just two months ago.
Clay County Chief Deputy Josh Clarke said these were two isolated situations, and there is no concern for public safety at this time.
"We did have a shooting just probably three months ago, down the road from this a few months ago. Again, the incidents are completely separate. Not the same, you know what so ever. Ironic yes, but not something that's concerning," said Clarke.
Clarke said they are still investigating the cause of the incident.
More information could be released after the investigation is completed and passed along to the prosecutors office.
