Arlington shooting leads to unrelated arrests

ARLINGTON -- One man was shot, and two other men were arrested on unrelated charges after a meeting went bad about 5 p.m. Monday.

Police were called to the Arlington Park Apartments in the 3100 block of East Park Row with calls of a disturbance at Joshua DeWayne Hopgood's apartment.

What they found was Hopgood's brother shot. His name and age were unavailable. His wound was not life-threatening. He was transported to Dallas Methodist Hospital, police said.

According to police Lt. Blake Miller, Hopgood said the shooter fled but that he detained a friend of the shooter, identified by police as Kantral Taylor, age and address unavailable.

Miller said it appears that robbery was a motive.

Miller said police took Taylor and Hopgood into custody on unrelated charges. Taylor is being held on outstanding warrants. Hopgood is being held on warrants for assault and drug possession.

Police said the assailant was a black male, early 20s, 6 foot 1 inch and 250 pounds. He may have fled in a green older-model Chevy Malibu.
