TRINITY, TX (KTRE) -
The second suspect in a Trinity New Year's party shooting is in custody.
Trinity Police Chief Steven Jones said Texas Ranger Steve Jeter arrested Garius O'Bryant, 21, of Huntsville, for his alleged involvement in a shooting at Club Kroxx-D-Trakx on New Year's Day. Two men, 19 and 20, of Trinity, were hospitalized for gunshot wounds. One of the men was flown by helicopter to a regional hospital.
Through a joint investigation by Trinity PD and Texas Rangers, O'Bryant was identified as a shooter. Huntsville PD also assisted in finding that the disturbance was between a group of Huntsville and Trinity residents, Jones said. A warrant was issued for two counts of aggravated assault with deadly weapons. The Texas Rangers arrested him in Huntsville.
Jones said the Walker County Sheriff's Office was already looking for him on charges of burglary of vehicle and aggravated robbery. He is already out on bond on a murder charge there.
Jones said they will dismiss the charges against Trevion Williams, 19, of Huntsville, for now and allow a grand jury to review his case. Williams was arrested on Jan. 4.
Jones said a warrant is also out for Bobby Ray Adams Jr., 23, on the same charges.
