From Staff Reports
On Monday, Nov. 7 at approximately 7:39 p.m., the Corsicana Police 911 Operators received two reports of gunshots in the area of the 600 Blk of N. 26th. The first officer arrived in the area approximately three minutes later. A search of the area failed to locate the shooter, nor were there any witnesses as to the exact location of where the shots were fired.
At approximately 8:40 p.m., the Corsicana Police Department responded to a 911 call in the 1600 Blk of W. First Avenue regarding a female subject that had been shot in the torso. This location is approximately 1/2 Blk from N. 26th. Preliminary investigation indicates that the female had confronted the suspect about infidelity issues via text messages earlier in the evening and indicated that she had taken his gun and fired it several times in the yard. When the suspect arrived home, he saw the weapon lying in the open and immediately retrieved it. The suspect advised that he took the weapon from the bed, at which time the victim attempted to gain control of the weapon. During the struggle, the weapon was discharged.
Physical and electronic evidence was collected at the scene. The Corsicana Police Department Investigative division is still conducting the investigation, and all findings at this point are preliminary. The name of the victim will not be released until Nov. 9, 2022. The suspect was arrested and transported to the Navarro County Sheriff’s Office Jail where he is awaiting arraignment.
