Midland Police were called out to a house in the 900 block of West Taylor in reference to a burglary, during which, shots were fired in the house.

We're told the three subjects then fled the scene.

Police located one armed subject, 36-year-old Hector Subia, in an alley behind a house near the intersection of South Terrell Street and East New Jersey Avenue just before 4 a.m.
