Arlington, Texas - Arlington Police found a 38 year-old woman dead from a gunshot wound in North Arlington on Tuesday evening.
Officers responded to a shooting at an apartment complex on Cottoncreek Drive around 7:30 pm. When officers arrived, they located the woman in the parking lot with an apparent gunshot wound, pronounced deceased at the scene.
Through the course of their investigation, officers learned that just prior to the shooting, the victim’s 19-year-old daughter and a 23-year-old man were involved in a domestic dispute. Their encounter escalated and there was eventually a physical struggle over a gun that was inside the man’s vehicle. Detectives believe as they fought over the weapon, it discharged, striking the victim who was standing nearby.
The man and woman involved in this incident were still at the scene when officers arrived. The man, identified as Bobby Davis, was arrested on a Marijuana charge and is in the process of being booked into the Arlington Jail. The woman was released from Police Headquarters after being interviewed by detectives.
Detectives will consult with the Tarrant County Criminal District Attorney’s Office on the appropriate charges related to this case.
