The Marion County Sheriff’s Office responded to the 1400 block of Southland Parkway after receiving several reports of shots being fired late this past Sunday night.


According to a release, the victim, 29 year old Eric Matthews, was found with a non-life threatening gunshot wound to his leg. He was transported to Marion General and then later to Grant Medical center for treatment.


Marion County Sheriff’s Deputies were told by witnesses that just after the shots were fired they observed a male wearing a black hoodie and dark pants running from where the shots came from and in to a nearby apartment on Southland Parkway.


Following an investigation, Reagan Cook, Javon Gray and Marshall Talley Jr. were all arrested out of this incident.


The case has been sent to the Marion County Prosecutor for formal criminal charges.
