The Arlington Police Department is investigating a shooting incident that has left one person dead and another injured.
Officers responded to an apartment complex in the 2000 block of S. Cooper Street around 6:45pm this evening for a shooting call. When they arrived, they located a victim in the parking lot with an apparent gunshot wound. The victim was transported by ambulance to the hospital. A second victim was taken by private vehicle to the hospital. One of the victims has died.
Police have arrested and charged a 45-year-old female with one count of Murder and another count of Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon.
Arlington police investigators are still working to determine the circumstances surrounding the crime.
An ongoing severe weather outbreak is currently in progress across a large portion of Texas and Oklahoma.
Earlier today, forecasters upgraded a large portion of southwestern and central Oklahoma – including Oklahoma City – as well as areas of west Texas to a ‘HIGH’ risk of severe storms. The ‘HIGH’ risk is rarely issued from the National Weather Service’s Storm Prediction Center. Large, long-track tornadoes are expected along with “significant flooding.”
Luckily, the severe weather threat will stay well west and north of the immediate Dallas/ Fort Worth Metroplex. The NWS in Fort Worth sent up a weather balloon earlier today to check the strength of the atmosphere. The reading continued to show a strong ‘CAP’ over the Metroplex, which will hinder any thunderstorm development.
But up north in Oklahoma, atmospheric conditions appear to favor strong tornadoes and significant severe weather through tonight.
We’ll be keeping an eye on things just in case they change for the immediate DFW Metroplex, but for now, nothing is expected to impact our area.
Multiple Fort Worth PD officers are on scene in the area of 2900 6th Ave in the Ryan Place neighborhood of central / south central Fort Worth for a missing child.
Reports indicate this is a kidnapping. Fort Worth police were dispatched to the scene around 6:37pm this evening.
Update – Police say Salem Sabatka was the victim. She is an 8-year-old white female with brown hair and blue eyes. 4’5”, 56 lbs. No additional details at this time. Police say the suspect is a bald caramel/black skin 40-year-old male who picked up Salem from the street. She was walking with her mother, who attempted to gain access to the suspect’s vehicle, but was unsuccessful.
When abducted, she was wearing a teal t-shirt and green leggings.
The suspect’s vehicle description is a gray 4-door sedan, alloy wheels with light tint with paper tag/license plates.
