One man was found dead at the scene and three others were wounded at an east Arlington apartment complex this morning.

Officers were called to the Spring Crest Apartments shortly after 1:15 a.m. after they received several 911 calls reporting that multiple shots had been fired within the apartment grounds in the 2200 block of Crest Creek Drive, according to police.

They found one man dead and three other people wounded at the complex, said Sgt. Jeffrey Houston, Arlington police spokesman. The three wounded, a man and woman in their 30s and another man in his 20s, were taken to area hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries, Houston said.

As of this morning, police have no suspects, no motive and no witnesses.

“It was a large crime scene spread out over several places,” Houston said. “We’re working the crime scene and knocking on doors. We are looking for the public’s help.”

Police have recovered several pieces of evidence but Houston said he was not sure exactly what has been recovered. A Cadillac was towed by police, Houston said. Police have found several blood trails.

“There could be people out there who are wounded that we don’t know about yet,” Houston said. “We are checking with all the hospitals.”

If anyone has information about what happened, they are asked to contact Det. Ben Lopez at 817-459-5373 or call Crime Stoppers at 817-469-8477. Crime Stoppers tipsters are eligible for a cash reward and can remain anonymous.
