Update: Grapevine man fired into street to disperse crowd, striking teen

A Grapevine man was arrested Wednesday night, accused of firing his shotgun to disperse a group of young people — including his child — outside his home.

A bullet fragment struck a 17-year-old in one leg. He was treated at a nearby hospital and released, according to the news release.

Police were called about 8:20 p.m. to the 3000 block of Creekview Drive, according to a Grapevine Police Department news release. Witnesses told police that a homeowner came outside and tried to get a group of teenagers — one of which was his child —to leave by firing several shots from his shotgun. He went back inside until police arrived.

Jason Marcum, 43, was taken into police custody and faces charges of deadly conduct.

Police originally said the victim’s age was 20, but in an updated news release said he is 17.
