ARLINGTON, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) — A woman in her 20s has died after getting shot at an Arlington apartment complex early Saturday morning.

At 2:06 a.m. May 9, Arlington police responded to a shooting in the 2500 block of Forest Point Drive. When officers arrived, they found the victim with an apparent gunshot wound.

The woman — who has not yet been identified — was transported to a local hospital where she was later pronounced dead.

Officers initially detained a man believed to have been in a relationship with the victim and involved in the shooting.
