DALLAS (NBC DFW) - A scare for fans at Burleson High School's Football game Friday night, when police asked them to stay in the stadium while they investigated reports of shots fired in a nearby neighborhood.

At about 10 p.m. police were called about a man discharging a weapon from a vehicle traveling along John Jones Drive from Alsbury Boulevard.

Shortly after 10:30 p.m., 911 callers reported hearing gunshots in the area of the Mistletoe Hills neighborhood.

Officers responded to the neighborhood and received a disturbance call on Evergreen Lane, officers said they heard additional shots fired.

Police pulled over Jimmy Rand Holloway and say they found a rifle on his front seat, along with fired cartridges inside the vehicle.
