BB Shooter

Posted on 16th May 2018 at 09:06

Longview Police continue to investigate a “shots fired” incident that was reported yesterday afternoon at an apartment complex in the 3100 block of Maryland Street. At about ten minutes to 5 pm, residents of the complex called 911, reporting that a man was shooting windows out of one of the units. Those on the scene reported that there was some sort of domestic dispute, with a woman yelling for a man to leave. Officers responded and then they worked to clear the area, blocking surrounding streets and evacuating at least two other apartments. The man gave himself up after just a few minutes, reportedly coming out of the building with his hands up; apparently in the company of a small child. The man was taken into custody and the apartment was searched. It’s reported that the man may have been dealing with some mental health issues. The street closures were lifted around 5:15 pm. So far, no arrests have been reported.
