HALTOM CITY, Texas (AP) — Five people are in custody after four people were shot during an exchange of gunfire during what authorities in North Texas say began as a break-in at an apartment home.

Police in Haltom City say one person is in critical condition and the three others wounded have non-life-threatening injuries.

Detective Matthew Spillane says the people in custody were in a vehicle speeding from the complex as officers arrived Saturday evening.
