DIBOLL, TX - (KTRE) - A Diboll man who allegedly shot a woman in front of their four children on March 1 is now in custody.
According to a post on the Diboll Police Department Facebook page, Anthony Kelly was arrested in Corpus Christi.
“Through investigation and tips The PD was able to obtain a possible location of Kelly somewhere in Corpus Christi area,” the Facebook post stated.

According to the post, Kelly, 36, will be extradited back to Angelina County, where he will be charged with first-degree felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Diboll police said that Kelly fled the scene after the shooting incident on Devereaux Street and later crashed on U.S. Highway 59. He then allegedly fled on foot.
