PALESTINE (TYLER MORNING TELEGRAPH) - A Wednesday afternoon shooting in Palestine has left one man in critical condition and another man in jail charged in the crime. 

Palestine Police Lt. James Muniz said officers responded to Palestine Regional Medical Center about 3:45 p.m. Wednesday after emergency staff reported a man with a gunshot wound to the chest was being treated. 

Muniz said the department also received a 911 call advising the shooting took place in the 100 block of West Huffsmith Street and officers were sent to the location. 

Muniz said upon his arrival at the hospital he learned 26-year-old Brandon Lee Lively was suffering from a single gunshot wound to the chest and was being transported to a Tyler hospital where he remains listed in critical but stable condition.
