LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - A Corrigan man pleaded guilty to his part in a 2010 shooting that left two seriously injured.

Amos Bernard Flournoy, 18, accepted a five-year prison sentence.

According to an arrest warrant affidavit, police received a call from a residence on 1713 North First Street that two people had been shot. When officers arrived they observed a brown Ford Explorer and a white Lincoln parked in the middle of the road. The Explorer immediately pulled away from the scene as officer conducted a stop on the Lincoln.

The affidavit states three adults, including Omar Trey Williams, 19, of Corrigan, and Flournoy and two juveniles were in the car. Officers handcuffed all five of them and observed the barrel of a Long Colt 45 sticking out from underneath the front passengers' seat. All five were taken to LPD for questioning, the affidavit states.

Officers interviewed the people in the Explorer. The three backseat passengers said Flournoy  was the one that shot the Colt 45 toward subjects standing in a yard on the 1700 block of North First Street.

The occupants of the Explorer told police they were driving behind the Lincoln when the shooting occurred. They then stopped in the street to speak with the occupants of the Lincoln and said they saw the revolver sitting in Flournoy's lap, the affidavit states.

In questioning, detectives say Williams told them Flournoy shot the guy, while Flournoy told detectives Williams did the shooting. The affidavit states Williams and Flournoy talked about covering up their involvement in the shooting while riding in the police car back to the station.

The affidavit states the occupants of the Lincoln came to Lufkin from Corrigan to get revenge on a group that jumped them the day before. Officers found several baseball bats and pipes in the Lincoln, the affidavit states.

The affidavit concludes that Flournoy shot the gun, but Williams knew full well that Flournoy would use it when Flournoy said, "I got something for them this time," while he was holding the gun, just before Williams drove the group to the address.

Dextravian Robertson suffered a gunshot wound to the upper left arm. The bullet broke his humerus bone in half. Otis Daniels suffered a gunshot wound to the chest. The bullet went through his left lung and partially collapsed it, the affidavit states.

Williams was scheduled for a plea hearing on September 13, but did not show up for the hearing, according to court records.
