APD Arrests Two in Incident on Goodnight

Two people have been arrested in an incident of Goodnight Trail, according to the Amarillo Police Department.

APD reports that officers were dispatched to a home this morning at 4504 Goodnight Trail on the call that a bullet had hit the window of a home. Reports indicated that the bullet had been fired from 4506 Goodnight Trail, because the bullet hit the home on the south side. Officers found no signs of activity at the home at 4506 Goodnight. APD reports that officers were able to determine who was supposed to be inside the home and APD developed information that rifles could potentially be inside the house.

APD's SWAT and Negotiators were sent to the site, in case the suspect was barricaded inside with the gun. Officers notified neighbors of the situation and used a large speaker to try to make contact with whoever was inside.

At 5:40am, an adult male came out of the house and was detained without incident. APD reports that officers learned that a female was inside and was concealing herself in a closet due to outstanding traffic warrants. Within a few moments, the female exited the home and was taken into custody.

Officers found a bullet hole inside of the wall of the house and on the fence between the properties, suggesting that the shot originated from inside the home.

Mark Stephens, 39 and Amber Crow, 18, were arrested. Stephens was booked into the Randall County Jail on a charge of Discharge of a Firearm inside a municipality with a population over 100,000 people. The charge is a Class A misdemeanor.

Crow was arrested for five outstanding municipal warrants.
