At 3:50 a.m. on Friday, May 26, officers were dispatched to a call of gunshots in the area of Little School Road and Sublett Road. On arrival in the area, officers began to investigate the call. An 18-year-old male suspect was located walking a short distance away. During a field interview, the male was found to be in possession of a 9mm handgun. A sweep of the area later revealed multiple 9mm casings in the intersection as well as near a parked vehicle in a nearby neighborhood. The vehicle had sustained several bullet holes fired by the suspect. One of the rounds struck a home, but did not penetrate.
The suspect was arrested and charged with Deadly Conduct as well as Felon in Possession of a Firearm due to a previous burglary conviction. The handgun was determined to have been stolen in a Kennedale vehicle burglary earlier this month and was entered into evidence. He was transported to jail for booking and remains in custody.
