According to Denton police, officers responded to the 1500 block of Bolivar Street at 8:35 p.m. on May 9 after a 911 caller reported that someone had been shot.

Upon arrival, officers found an unresponsive woman lying on the floor and arrested 24-year-old Joseph Davis at the scene. Police said the victim had suffered an apparent gunshot wound to the head.
