First responders, including members of the Wills Point Police Department, Van Zandt County Sheriff’s Office, Wills Point Volunteer Fire Department and Champion EMS were all dispatched to a local apartment complex Tuesday afternoon in response to reports of an incident involving gunshots and a resident reportedly struck in the lower extremities by a bullet.

According to reports, two males visited a mutual acquaintance at the Royal Lane Apartments located in the northern portion of Wills Point shortly after 1 p.m. Oct. 10.

The situation escalated quickly with an argument turning into a physical confrontation between the two visitors to the apartment, the resident, and a friend of the resident that was on scene at the time of the incident.
