CROCKETT, TX (KTRE) - Crockett police say they have arrested a man accused of chasing a man around houses and shooting at him on June 19.

Tyrell Deshawn Beasley, 27, of Crockett, is charged with second-degree aggravated assault, third-degree deadly conduct and misdemeanor-A evading arrest. He is also being held on a probation violation of injury to a child/elderly/disabled. His bond on the three felonies is at a collective $125,000. His bond on the misdemeanor has not yet been set.

According to a press release, Crockett PD officers were dispatched out to the 1100 block of Martin Luther King Blvd. at about 8:27 a.m. on June 19 to check on a report of gunshots.

When the CPD officers arrived on the scene, they learned that Beasley and another man got into a fight. At one point, Beasley allegedly pulled a handgun and fired at the other man as he chased him between several houses.

"During the incident, a residence was struck several times with projectiles from the gun," the press release stated. "The victim was able to escape with minor scratches and notified police of the incident."

A press release issued on Tuesday states Trinity County Sheriff Woody Wallace told police they knew where Beasley was. Crockett officers met with Trinity County deputies and Trinity police on Monday to track Beasley. They determined Beasley had headed back to Crockett, driving on back roads. Crockett police then found Beasley on Terell Street in Crockett. When they tried to arrest him, Beasley ran away, according to the report.
