Man fatally shoots Arlington neighbor, then calls police; case to go to grand jury

One man is dead after his neighbor shot him in an Arlington apartment and then reported the killing, police said.

The identities of the two men haven’t been released. The man who fired the shots wasn’t arrested and is cooperating with the homicide investigation, police said.

Officers responded around 2:50 a.m. to an apartment complex in the 6000 block of Sprucewood Lane, police said. They recovered the body of a man with a gunshot wound, and he was pronounced dead.

Witnesses told police the man who was killed had entered a neighbor’s apartment, “which ultimately led to the shooting,” police said in a news release.

Police didn’t describe further details of what led to the shooting.

The shooter, police said, was interviewed by investigators “to determine exactly what happened.”

The Tarrant County Medical Examiner will release the identity of the victim, pending notification of next of kin.

The case is set to be forwarded to the Tarrant County Grand Jury for further review, police said.
