Neighbors may have exchanged gunfire

Police are continuing to piece together what may have led to an exchange of gunfire in a Burleson neighborhood.

"I don't know that we yet have a definitive understanding of what transpired," Police Chief Billy Cordell said.

Officers were dispatched to a call of shots fired at 5:54 p.m. Thursday evening in the area of Gardens Boulevard at Sue Ann Drive.

"It appears someone had shot maybe a BB pellet at a house, but we aren't sure which house," Cordell said. "Then someone else seems to have fired a weapon."

He's not clear what caliber round may have been fired in return, or from what direction. It is also not definitive what the intended target may have been.

"We believe they ran into a house, but weren't sure which house it was," Cordell said. "We don't know if the shot was fired at someone, or at what else it may have been fired."

Police are continuing to investigate the case.

Anyone with information that might lead to an arrest in the case may call Johnson County Crime Stoppers anonymously at 817-469-8477 or text "JCCS" and a message to 274637.
