MARSHALL, Texas (KLTV) - The Marshall Police Department has made arrests in a shooting that involved at least six people, three of whom were juveniles.

Today, they sent the following update on the alleged crime:

On Tuesday, August 31, 2021, at approximately 1:50 p.m. dispatch received a call in reference to a large number of gunshots heard near the intersection of Sanford and West Meredith St.

Responding officers found an empty white GMC Yukon wrecked at the intersection of West Meredith and Sanford. The vehicle had several obvious bullet strikes, and there was blood seen inside the vehicle. Officers were told that three males had been observed in the Yukon and they had been trading gunfire with the three males inside another passenger car.

Deputies with the Harrison County Sheriff’s located a gold Toyota Camry that had been observed leaving the area of the shooting and made a felony traffic stop on the vehicle. Three adult males were inside the vehicle and they were detained without incident. They were then transported to the Marshall Police Department for interviews and processing.

Three juvenile males were also located, and they were also brought to the juvenile processing areas of the Marshall Police Department.

The resulting interviews, and the evidence from the scene resulted in the three adults each being charged with one count of Deadly Conduct, Discharging Firearm and one count of Engaging in Organized Criminal Activity. It was determined that the blood belonged to a dog that had a grazing injury and no humans were injured during this incident.

The juveniles each face the same charges of Deadly Conduct, Discharging Firearm and Engaging in Organized Criminal Activity and were transported to the Harrison County Juvenile Detention Center.
