Police are investigating the death of a Galveston man who was shot Sunday evening.

Police were called about 10:30 p.m. to the 1200 block of 21st Street in Galveston to a report of a shooting, spokesman Derek Gaspard said.

Officers found Anthony Maupin, 44, of Galveston, suffering from a gunshot wound, police said.

Maupin was taken by ambulance to a University of Texas Medical Branch hospital, where he died, police said.

Police released few details about the shooting, declining to say where Maupin was shot on his body, or what he was believed to have been doing before the shooting.

Maupin was inside a building when he was shot, police said.

He was not able to speak to investigators before he died, Gaspard said.

No arrests had been made Tuesday.

There is at least one person of interest, however, Gaspard said. Police are searching for suspects and witnesses, he said.

Although Maupin was shot Sunday evening, police did not confirm his death until 4:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Witnesses or those with more information can call Crime Stoppers at 409-763-8477 or the Galveston Police Department at 409-765-3781.
