Blotter: 19-year-old man shot multiple times in Little Elm

A 19-year-old man was taken to a hospital in Plano on Monday afternoon after he was shot multiple times by an unidentified gunman at his home in the 2800 block of Dawn Springs Drive in Little Elm, according to a press release from the town.

Paramedics were able to stabilize the teenager on the scene before he underwent emergency surgery, the release said. A witness called police about noon and said victim was bleeding in his driveway. He said neighbors were tending to him before paramedics arrived, according to the release. The victim has not been identified.

Little Elm police Sgt. Marcus Maxie did not know the victim's condition Monday afternoon, and  police still were searching for the suspect. 

The surrounding schools were on lockdown for about 15 minutes after the shooting, he said.

A second Dallas police officer turned herself in to the Denton County Sheriff's Office on Saturday in connection to a burglary last year in Aubrey.

Angelle Ponseti was charged with burglary of habitation after she was accused of helping her boyfriend, Dallas police Sgt. Gregory Epley Jr., burglarize his estranged wife's Aubrey home in October, according to the arrest affidavit from Aubrey police.

Epley, who has tongue cancer, is accused of stealing birth certificates, social security cards and a marriage license from the home, according to the arrest affidavit. Epley, who has been charged with burglary of a habitation and stalking, turned himself in to the Denton County Sheriff's Office last week.
