Police Respond to Call of Gunshots


LITTLE ELM, TX (June 24, 2019). At approximately 11:20 p.m., the Little Elm Police Department received a report of gunshots at a residence at 2528 Saddlehorn Drive. Little Elm Police officers responded and discovered bullet holes in the door of the house, and someone inside the home who would not answer the door. Officers set up a perimeter around the home and attempted to make contact with the subject. 

Approximately midnight, the LEPD received a call that several subjects were at the Racetrac located at 2100 F.M. 423 in Little Elm talking about being involved in a shooting. LEPD officers detained these subjects and identified them as witnesses to the shooting on Saddlehorn. 

At 12:02 a.m., the Plano Police Department report a gunshot victim at the Texas Health Plano Presbyterian Hospital emergency room at 6200 W. Parker Road. LEPD detectives responded and confirmed the subject was shot at 2528 Saddlehorn. 

LEPD negotiators were successful in contacting the subject inside the property on Saddlehorn Drive, identified as a resident of the home. The subject refused to leave the house and speak with officers. 

As a result, the Little Elm S.W.A.T. was activated and deployed around the home. Shortly after, negotiators were successful in convincing the subject inside the house to surrender, and he was taken into custody without incident.

LEPD detectives are currently working on a search warrant for the property, and the investigation is ongoing.
