A man is in custody in connection with a shooting sparked by an argument with an acquaintance last Saturday in Denton, police say.

Investigators said 39-year-old Noah Burch fired multiple rounds at a vehicle in the street and then shot a man inside a home along the 400 block of Evers Way.

A second residence was also hit by gunfire, but no one inside was injured.

Denton Police said the two men knew each other and had a verbal argument before the shooting.
