The Garland Police Department responded to the report of a vehicle crashing into a house in the 1300 block of McDonald Drive Sept. 4 at approximately 6:30 p.m. While responding, officers were made aware that people from one vehicle were shooting a gun at the other.
When officers arrived they observed a black GMC Yukon crashed into the garage of a residence on McDonald Drive and the driver of the vehicle had sustained several gunshot wounds.
Detectives were notified and determined that the Yukon was traveling southbound on Saturn Road along with a suspect vehicle.
