The Arlington Police Department has made an arrest in connection to a triple homicide that occurred on January 25, 2024 at an apartment complex in the 3500 block of Chatham Green Lane.

Following a thorough investigation of that incident, detectives identified the suspect as 29-year-old Larry Reed and obtained a warrant for his arrest on one count of Capital Murder. On Tuesday, February 6, 2024, the department was notified that authorities in the Greenville, Mississippi area located Mr. Reed and took him into custody.

He is currently being held at the Washington County, Mississippi Jail while he awaits extradition to Tarrant County.

APD would like to thank the U.S. Marshals Service and Washington County Sheriff’s Office for their assistance in apprehending him.

Detectives believe Mr. Reed knew at least one of the victims from the January 25 incident. They are still working to determine a motive for the killings.


On Thursday, January 25, 2024, at approximately 8:33 p.m., the Arlington Police Department responded to an apartment complex in the 3500 block of Chatham Green Lane to investigate a reported shooting.

A witness called 911 to report that he heard a loud noise, then saw someone lying unresponsive near the doorway of a second-floor apartment. He also reported the door to the apartment appeared to be kicked in.

When officers arrived on scene, they learned the victim, a 29-year-old male, had been shot. He was pronounced deceased at the scene.

Due to the nature of the call, officers did an emergency sweep of the apartment and found a 29-year-old female and 31-year-old male inside who also had gunshot wounds. The female was pronounced deceased at the scene. The 31-year-old male was transported to a local hospital where he was later pronounced deceased from his injuries.

Two young children were inside the apartment as well. They were unharmed and were released to family members.

Through the course of their investigation, detectives learned the man and woman found inside the apartment were in a dating relationship and lived at the apartment with the woman’s children. The man found near the doorway appears to be an acquaintance who was visiting the apartment.

The Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office will identify the deceased once next of kin have been notified.

Witnesses told officers they saw a man running from the scene shortly after they heard gunshots. No arrests have been made.

After speaking to witnesses and reviewing evidence, investigators believe high-risk activity may be involved in this incident. The investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to call Detective VanTreeck at (817) 459-5691. Tipsters can remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers of Tarrant County at (817) 469-8477.
