Shots fired after argument bring arrest

TEMPLE, TX - A 20-year-old Temple man has been arrested, charged with firing shots at a car belonging to someone he had argued with earlier in the day on Tuesday.

Temple police had responded to a "shots fired" call in the 9100 block of Vista Valley Drive about 7:30 p.m. Tuesday.

At the same time there was a call about a group of men with guns in the 500 block of Mourning Dove.

Officers responding to Vista Valley Drive found a vehicle that had been hit by gunfire and recovered a shell casing.

At the other location, police were told that someone in a gray Nissan had pointed a handgun at the people on Mourning Dove.

After piecing information from both sites together, police determined that a group of teens who live at Mourning Dove and on Vista Valley were friends and had gotten into a disturbance with a man identified as 20-year-old Patrick Aaron and another man at a park on West Adams.

Everybody then went home only to have shots fired at the car on Vista Valley.

The suspect vehicle occupied by Aaron was stopped at a third location where Aaron was identified as the man believed to have pointed the weapon and made threats.

The handgun was recovered from the vehicle, Aaron was arrested and the other occupants of the car were released.

Aaron was taken to the Bell County Jail.
