A shooting suspect in Denton was recently arrested due to an altercation with his roommate. A man initially walked out of his apartment with blood on his hands. He claimed that his injuries were the result of self-defense due to a disagreement with his roommate.
Law enforcement later responded to the scene after reports of gunshots heard inside the home. The suspect who was covered in blood was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after shooting his roommate in the foot with a Glock pistol. The victim was transported to a nearby medical facility with a head injury as well as bullet fragments in his foot.
Questioned by law enforcement at the hospital, the victim revealed that while he was sleeping, the roommate had entered the room with a gun and accused the victim of stealing a speaker. The man then held the victim at gunpoint and repeatedly struck the victim in the head with the pistol. Later, when the victim tried to run outside, the man fired and hit the victim’s foot. Eventually, the victim contacted law enforcement from a nearby phone.
