Man Arrested After Patrol Vehicles Shot

FORT WORTH (AP) – A suspect has been arrested as North Texas police investigate gunfire that damaged three parked patrol vehicles while the officers were off-duty.

Mansfield city jail records show 19-year-old Luis Felipe Gallegos was being held Tuesday on a deadly conduct charge related to discharge of a firearm. Online records don’t list an attorney for Gallegos, whose bond was set at $3,000 following his arrest last Thursday.

Fort Worth police say nobody was hurt in three apparently related incidents.

A rifle stolen from a Texas Department of Public Safety trooper’s patrol car June 15 has been recovered.

Officers on June 16 answered a criminal mischief car about a police car hit by gunfire.

Investigators the next day learned that a Fort Worth police car, parked in Lake Worth, was peppered by gunfire.
