A man was found dead inside a pickup truck early Friday after a disturbance erupted into gunfire, according to Arlington officials.

Officials with the U.S. Marshals North Texas Fugitive Task Force arrested Patrick Dewayne Williams, 33, Friday afternoon, and he was being held in the Arlington jail facing a murder charge, according to police. Bond had not been set, police said.

Arlington police officials said they are withholding Williams’ photo while they complete this phase of their investigation.

Officers arrived at an apartment complex in the 2100 block of Calais Way in north Arlington early Friday in response to a shooting call and found the victim, a statement from the Arlington police said. The victim’s name has not been released.

Authorities believed the shooting may be related to a disturbance between the victim and an acquaintance, said Lt. Christopher Cook, Arlington police spokesman.

The suspect and the victim were involved in the disturbance about 1:30 a.m., shortly before shots were fired, a preliminary investigation revealed. The suspect left the area on foot right after the shooting, police said.

There were no other reported injuries.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Richard Coleman, a detective with the homicide unit at 817-459-5373. Tipsters can also remain anonymous and may be eligible for a cash reward by contacting Tarrant County Crime Stoppers at 817-469-8477.
