Plano police arrested Kevin Genter, 45, for allegedly firing gunshots from a four-door sedan in the parking lot of the Toyota headquarters in Plano Oct. 22. 

Plano police say Toyota security staff believe Genter’s vehicle matched one they’d seen someone dropping nails from across the Toyota parking lot Oct. 20 and 21.

Genter was arrested on a complaint of deadly conduct.

Plano police, University Park police, the Highland Park Department of Public Safety, and SMU police have ongoing investigations, and Plano police say additional charges may be brought.
