Around 3 a.m. Friday, two men's vehicle left them stranded in a woman's backyard off of FM 707, North of Tye. They attempted to steal the truck of the homeowner, Sharon Ledger. When Ledger's daughter yelled at them to leave, the suspects shot in her direction, hitting their kitchen window. Shots were fired until both of the suspects were detained. Both suspects were eventually caught, one at 4 a.m. and one around 7 a.m.

Although no injuries occurred during this incident, this was a pretty scary incident for Sharon Ledger and her daughter. Ledger recalls waking up to the sound of gunshots, but thinking she was dreaming. She was very nervous to go near her windows and says that she has no idea how the suspects even got in her backyard.
