Jacque D. Johnson
ABILENE, Texas -

A 29-year-old Abilene man has been arrested on a parole violation after being shot Wednesday by an unidentified suspect at Abilene North Apartments.

Jacque D. Johnson was picked up after he sustained a bullet wound to the neck and was taken to Hendrick Medical Center for treatment, police said in a news release Thursday.

According to police, Johnson and a yet-to-be-identified male suspect had an altercation at the apartment complex on Mimosa Drive before the suspect shot at Johnson multiple times, hitting him the neck.

A records check confirmed Johnson had a warrant out for a drug-related parole violation, the news release said. After Johnson was treated and released from Hendrick, he was arrested and taken to Taylor County Jail. Johnson is currently being held without bond.

The suspect is believed to have fled the Abilene Police Department’s jurisdiction. No other arrests have been made and APD hopes to have an arrest warrant issued for the shooting suspect soon.

APD officials said more details may become available as the ongoing aggravated assault investigation continues.
