A man whose vehicle was reportedly struck in a hit-and-run Saturday is facing a deadly conduct charge after pulling a gun on the wrong driver, Southlake police say.

According to Southlake Police, 44-year-old Adrian Hill and his family were stopped at the intersection of W. Kirkwood Boulevard and Texas 114 shortly before 9 p.m. Saturday when his vehicle was struck by a dark-colored SUV.

Hill's wife called 911, police said, and he followed the SUV but lost sight of the vehicle when it turned onto Stockton Drive.

Moments later, Hill located what he thought was the same SUV parked in a driveway. Police said he parked his vehicle in the driveway, grabbed his gun, and approached the driver as a man and woman exited the SUV.

The driver saw the man coming toward him with a gun and pulled out a pocket knife. The men began scuffling, resulting in both of them suffering minor injuries.

At some point, Hill's gun was fired toward the SUV and the couple's home, but no one was hit.

Hill was arrested and charged with deadly conduct. It's not clear if he's obtained an attorney.
