TEXARKANA, TX (KSLA) - A Texarkana man is behind bars after police say he fired multiple shots from his home Thursday night.

Just after 9:30 p.m. officers responded to the 300 block of Blanton Street. They had received multiple calls of shots being fired from a home in that block earlier that day. Neighbors told officers that a man who lived at the residence came outside and fired a handgun from his porch. 

As police waited, they observed the suspect, later identified as 22-year-old Tacorrius Jordan, fire 13 shots from his porch. Officers approached Jordan's home and he went back inside and would not open the door. Police were eventually able to get him to surrender.

Jordan was arrested and charged with discharging a firearm within the city limits. Anyone with information on this crime is urged to contact the Texarkana Texas Police Department at (903) 798-3116 or Crime Stoppers at (903) 793-STOP.
