TYLER, TEXAS (KLTV) - Tyler police are looking for a man believed to have shot a woman at a Tyler apartment.
Police say that on Tuesday, May 21, at 7:39 a.m., Tyler Police responded to a shooting at Liberty Arms Apartments located at 2601 N. Broadway. When officers arrived, they located a 36-year-old female identified as Jacklyn Radway in her apartment. She had been shot once in the chest. Radway was taken to a local hospital by EMS; police say she is in serious condition.
Police determined that the suspect who shot Radway was the father of her children. He is identified as Patrick Daniels, 33, of Tyler. Officers blocked off parts of Bill Allen Road around noon Tuesday, as a Tyler Police mobile command unit pulled up to the scene. Martin said the suspect reportedly lived there, however, he was not at the home; he left prior to officers arriving on the scene.
Investigators located the suspect’s vehicle at his residence in the 11300 block of Grubbs Street in Smith County east of Tyler Pipe. Tyler police say they secured the area around the residence until it was determined later in the day that he was not inside.
Investigators got an arrest warrant for Daniels for Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon (Family Violence). Daniels whereabouts is unknown at this time. If you have know where he is, please contact Tyler Police Department immediately or call Tyler Crime Stoppers at 903-597-2833.
According to Sergeant Destry Wallsworth with Tyler police, the victim is currently undergoing surgery.
Martin said children were in the apartment at the time of the shooting but were not injured. Investigators had no reason to believe anyone else in the area was in any danger.
“At this time, I don’t think anybody else is in danger. I think this is an isolated incident in reference to the domestic dispute that occurred here this morning,” said Sgt. Wallsworth. “I don’t think the public is in any further damage at this point in time.”
Wallworths said that the apartment complex would be blocked off until well into Tuesday afternoon while investigators processed the scene, but residents would be free to come and go during the process.
