Tyler Burglary Arrest May Be Connected To Drive-By Shooting
Tyler police make a burglary arrest that may be connected to a driver-by shooting over the weekend. The burglary took place sometime Sunday afternoon at a home on Hillcrest and Front Street in Tyler. Police later stopped a truck, they say had items stolen from the home inside of it. Police arrested the driver Excsau Duran, 25 and Jose Gonzalez, 18, both of Tyler, and charged them with burglary of habitation. Duran was also charged with possession of a firearm.
Police also say this same truck may be involved in a drive-by shooting that occurred on North Emerson Street in Tyler early Sunday morning. Officers were unable to determine, however, if the firearms found inside the truck were linked to the shooting.
