On Saturday, May 9, 2020 at 2:06 a.m., the Arlington Police Department responded to a shooting in the 2500 block of Forest Point Drive at an apartment complex. Upon arrival, officers located a female in her 20s with an apparent gunshot wound. The victim was transported to a local hospital where she was later pronounced deceased. Officers initially detained a man who is believed to have a relationship with the woman and was involved in the incident. He was interviewed at police headquarters. Investigators are working to determine exactly what happened, however, initial statements indicate that this may have involved a firearm being handled in a negligent manner by the man. At this time, the man was released and the criminal case will be forwarded to the Tarrant County Criminal District Attorney’s Office for presentation to a Grand Jury after additional investigation occurs.

The Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office will release the identity of the deceased once next of kind have been identified.
