We now have more information on a domestic incident. It was just after 4 on the morning of August 31st when members of the Eau Claire Police Department were called to a hospital for a woman who was dropped off by an unknown male with severe head trauma and was listed in critical condition. It was believed the woman was a victim of a crime.
During the course of the investigation, the Department identified 41 year old Girard R. Jones as a possible suspect. Jones was located in a Chippewa Falls house and fled in a vehicle. Gun shots were fired during the course of the police pursuit. That ended in the area of Melby Road and Highway 53. Jones was taken into custody, interviewed where he claimed the victim jumped out of the moving vehicle on North Clairemont and Alpine Road. Detectives were able to locate evidence and confirm that was where the incident took place.
The victim remains in critical condition from the domestic incident and the Eau Claire Police Department is continuing to investigate and Jones is facing charges.
