The Sherman Police Department has arrested a man for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and evading arrest after responding to a call of shots fired at a residence on Anthony Drive.


In a news release issued Saturday, SPD said that around 1:50 a.m. the department was contacted about a shooting in the 3000 block of Anthony Drive in Sherman.
