The Arlington Police Department is investigating a burglary call that resulted in the shooting of one suspect. At approximately 4:15 p.m. today, officers were dispatched to the 900 block of Highcrest Drive. Upon arrival, they learned that a man inside the house heard a loud noise at the back of the residence.
