On Saturday a 51-year-old Fort Worth white man who was accused of choking a woman opened fire on police Saturday morning before he surrendered to the Police. Surprisingly or not, he was uninjured when he was taken into custody. Police officers responded to a domestic dispute phone call around 3:30 a.m. on Saturday in the 2500 block of Poplar Spring Road.
When Patrol officers arrived a man armed with a shotgun walked out of the residence, and seconds later, he opened fire on two officers at the scene. Officers returned fire as the man later identified as Trees retreated back into the residence.
As SWAT members arrived on the scene, Trees and a woman walked out of the home. Thankfully no one was injured from gunfire, according to the police.
The perpetrator Larry Trees now faces charges of assault of a family member and two counts of attempted capital murder, according to a statement given by the police on Sunday.
Before police arrived, Trees is accused of choking the woman in the residence, but police did not release the relationship between Trees and the woman. Trees was in the Mansfield Jail Sunday in lieu of $65,000 bail.
