Halloween weekend in Smith County ended up being a weekend filled with crime.

On Saturday night, Tyler police responded to an aggravated assault on North Ross Avenue.

Witnesses say a group of people were confronting a man outside of his house and pulled a gun on him.

on Sunday morning, Tyler police responded to a gunfire call at Campbell's Towing. Officer's were told someone drove by and fired several shots at the business before fleeing down Old Henderson Highway.

Also, early Sunday morning, Tyler P.D. responded to a robbery at the Barclay Apartments in Tyler. Apparently, a woman was walking to her apartment when she was approached by a man who pulled out a gun, took her purse and ran away.

And finally - a Sunday morning shooting at the former 'Dorothy's Disco' club near Lindale that sent three people to the hospital. The Smith County Sheriff's Department is still investigating the incident.

Since Halloween is already a spooky night without crime, parents were keeping an eye on their kids while trick-or-treating on Sunday.

"I'm just making sure I know where he's at at all times and if I can't see him, then I get out and yell for him," said Jason Rentz.

Even kids are up on staying safe while trick-or-treating.

"I can yell at my Daddy and say 'Daddy, I'm right here,' said Jason's son, Joseph Rentz.
