Allen Man Shot At Construction Workers


A 75-year-old Allen man who admitted to shooting at construction workers who were "irritating him" was arrested early Wednesday morning, police say.

Allen police called in the SWAT team after construction workers reported hearing a gun fired from an apartment in the 300 block of Greenville Avenue at 1:56 a.m.

Police said they surrounded the apartment and made several attempts to contact the man, later identified as Roy Dale Rogers.

Rogers exited the apartment peacefully at 5:16 a.m. and was taken into custody without incident, according to authorities.

Police said Rogers was initially detained for questioning. He later admitted to shooting at the construction workers because he was annoyed by the noise they were making.
