Just after midnight on Oct. 28, a person visiting a home in Dallas called 911 after 42-year-old Tyron Lambert allegedly came to the house of his estranged wife, 37-year-old Jasmyn Lambert, the Paulding County Sheriff’s Office said.
Tyron Lambert then allegedly forced his way into the home through the back door, threatened multiple people with a gun, and then fled the scene after learning someone phoned police, officers said.
Deputies from the sheriff’s office filed a report and sought arrest warrants for Tyron Lambert. They also initiated a “zone patrol” on the home and issued a “be on the lookout” (BOLO) alert for him, authorities said.
Around 7:15 a.m., another 911 caller told a dispatcher Tyron Lambert had returned to the home and allegedly forced his way into the home through the back door again, according to police.
Responding officers, who heard a gunshot at the home, entered the residence and apprehended Tyron Lambert after a brief struggle.
Tyron Lambert was arrested and booked into the Paulding County Jail. He was being held without bond.
