Investigators say 35-year-old Tobit Barajas fired shots at a taxi driver after some sort of dispute before going back inside. Other people from the home, believed to be children, were able to leave safely.

Barajas surrendered around 5 a.m. and was arrested, Chandler said.

There were no reported injuries.
