CROCKETT, TX (KTRE) -

The Houston County District Attorney's Office has rejected a charge against a man arrested in connection to a July 30 in incident in which shots were fired at a Crockett patrol unit, breaking out its back window.

Jacoriance Jamond Wooten, 21, of Trinity, has been released from the Houston County Jail.

Wooten was initially charged and accused of hiding the gun.

Two Crockett PD officers were working on an approved security detail at the Pine Ridge apartment complex in the 110 block of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard on July 30 when the incident occurred. Both men were in full uniform, and they were in a marked patrol unit.

While the officers were parked at the apartment complex, they heard several gunshots, and one of them broke out the back window of their patrol unit.

As other Crockett PD patrol units were arriving on the scene, dispatch received numerous tips that the person that fired the shots was D’Eric Branford, 18, of Crockett, the arrest affidavit stated. He was quickly located outside an apartment near the scene and detained for questioning.
