A man and a woman live at the home. Police explained that another woman — someone who knows the couple — arrived with two men who were carrying guns. It appears as though the two men were trying to break down the home’s front door when gunfire erupted.
Police confirmed that the male owner of the house shot and killed one person, a man in his early 20s, in the home’s entryway. Another suspect, also a man in his early 20s, was hit in the face by gunfire while in the home’s front yard. He was taken to Medical Center Arlington in serious condition.
Police are currently questioning the homeowner. This may not be a simple case of someone protecting themselves from a home invasion. “The female that brought the two men here that had firearms, she’s been detained,” explained Chris Cook with the Arlington Police Department. “The ones that live here — we believe the male is the one that did the shooting — they’re detained as well until we determine… was this a burglary or was there more to the story? We just don’t know that at this point.”
Authorities are also talking to several witnesses. The entire altercation is believed to have stemmed from an argument that took place on Wednesday.MORE NEWS: 3 Spectators Critically Injured After Vehicle Crashes Through Guardrail At Texas Race Track
