Man Recovering from Head Injury

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) - A man was hospitalized Thursday morning with a serious head injury after being assaulted.  Officers say they responded to a shooting call at a home on Carroll near McArdle around 5 a.m., and found a man with a hole in his forehead.  However, they are unclear exactly what caused the wound.

“It’s either a bullet hole or it could be a nail.  We don’t know what it is.  The medics on scene were unsure of what it was either,” said CCPD Lt. Thomas Bauer.

Investigators say the man was conscious when he was taken to Christus Spohn Memorial Hospital.  Anyone with information is encouraged to call Crime Stoppers at 888-TIPS.
