3 injured in Anna shooting

By  | 

ANNA, Tex. -- A shooting overnight in Anna sent three people to the hospital. Police Chief Kenny Jenks says a woman was home with her boyfriend and three young children in the 1600 block of Elm Street when Roger Batt of Plano tried to break in the back door.

The boyfriend was reportedly trying to hold the door shut when he was shot in the chest, through the glass. The man was airlifted to Parkland Hospital in Dallas, where he underwent surgery and was released.

When police arrived on scene, Batt actually pulled a rifle on the officer. The officer was able to push the gun to the floor though, and Batt surrendered.

The chief says the woman, who was pregnant, was also sent to Parkland after being assaulted with the gun, and the Batt turned out to be the woman's ex-husband.

Batt was taken to the hospital, where he was released and taken to the Collin County Jail. He now faces felony charges.
