The agency contracts with Sheridan for law enforcement services, and an on-duty deputy heard multiple gunshots in the city about 5 a.m.
 
Then a weapon’s complaint in the 200 block of Northwest Sherman Street was received by the deputy moments later. Sherman is located two blocks north of Highway 18B.
 
It was reported that a subject, later identified as Lindsey, came to a residence, broke windows out of two vehicles and removed items. He then brandished the handgun, pointed it at an adult male and threatened to shoot him. Then he fired a half dozen rounds at the residences.
