A 19-year-old Tarleton State University student remained in critical condition Tuesday after she was reportedly shot in the face.

Jamie Richards was found inside her apartment at Oak Tree West Apartments about 1:18 a.m. Monday after a resident called 9-1-1.

“A resident living in the apartment complex heard her calling for help,” said Sgt. Sha King with the Stephenville Police Department. “When we arrived on scene we found her lying just inside her apartment.”

King said Richards was in and out of consciousness and was transported by air to John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth.

King would not talk about a possible motive for the shooting. 

“This is still under investigation and we are asking anyone who might have heard or seen anything to come forward,” he said. 

Investigators believe the shooting is related to a report of shots fired that was received at 9:55 p.m. on Sunday.

Anyone with information is asked to call the SPD at 254-918-1273 or Crime Stoppers at 254-965-CASH (2274).
