TEMPLE, Texas (KWTX) Temple police were looking Friday for the victim of a shooting who left Scott & White Medical Center against medical advice.

“Out of concern for the victim’s safety, anyone who knows the victim, whose name cannot be released, is encouraged to contact Baylor Scott & White Hospital and the Temple Police Department,” police said in a press release Friday.

The unnamed man got out of a car after a traffic stop Wednesday in Temple and told officers he’d been shot.

An officer pulled the vehicle over just before 2:30 p.m. at Westfield Boulevard and West Adams Avenue, police spokeswoman Ellen Morton said.

The victim “stated that he had just been shot and promptly passed out,” she said.

The other two people in the car sped off, she said.

The officer stayed with the unidentified victim and provided a description of the vehicle to other officers, who found the car at the intersection of Airport Road and Twin Oaks Drive.

“The suspects’ car made a maneuver that caused the police vehicle and suspect car to collide. The suspects then fled on foot,” Morton said.

Officers caught both suspects, but had to use a Taser to subdue one of them.

The shooting victim and the suspect on whom the Taser was used were both taken to Scott & White Medical Center.

Frankie Nathaniel Boyd III, 23, and Duvalle Sommerville, 24, were arrested.

Boyd was charged with evading arrest.

His bond was set at $3,000.

He remained in custody Friday.

Sommerville was charged with unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon.

His bond had not been set as of Friday afternoon, according to online jail records.
