Roper, 21, both of Selma, were arrested and charged with felony counts of Shooting into an Occupied Dwelling and Shooting into an Occupied Vehicle.

Lt. Susan Smith of the Selma Police Department said investigators have not yet determined what caused the shootings to occur.

“We believe there may have been a conflict at the residence,” Smith said.

Smith added that investigators are trying to determine if the vehicle received “collateral damage” from the shooting.

There were no reported injuries.

The two suspects were taken to the Dallas County Jail on a $15,000 bond for both counts.
