On Tuesday, May 13, 2014, at about 0940 hours, Haltom City police were notified that a subject had discharged a gun while in his own vehicle in the 4100 block of Field St. The subject then pointed a weapon at a neighbor. The neighbor called the police. The suspect went inside his residence in the 4100 block of Field St. HCPD evacuated the immediate area and contacted the suspect by loudspeaker. The suspect came outside and surrendered peacefully. HCPD received information that explosives may be in the suspect’s house, and there may be another person in the house. The NE Bomb Squad and FWFD deployed their robots to check the house for any explosives or devices rigged to injure people. When no explosives or devices were found, HCPD SWAT checked the house for anyone else. Nobody else was in the house. The suspect information and charges are unknown at this time. This is an ongoing investigation.
