Amarillo Police arrest a man for firing shots in the Colonies Neighborhood

Amarillo, TX - Amarillo Police say the Special Weapons and Tactics Team, along with the Negotiation Unit were called to a home in the Colonies Neighborhood early Sunday morning.

Police say a domestic dispute turned violent just after 3 a.m. at a home in the 7600 block of Continental Parkway. According to police, as the victim was leaving, the suspect allegedly fired two shots into the air.

Officers who responded to the scene say they tried to make contact with the suspect, but he was already inside. Because police could not determine if the man was armed, backup was called in for help.

Three hours later police were able to reach the suspect, who is being identified as 43-year-old Greg McCoy.

Police say he was arrested and booked into the Randall County Jail for discharging his firearm. No injures were reported.
