Charges dropped for one in Texas school shooting

By Alexi Knock,

Prosecutors dropped charges today against a man who was involved in the Lone Star College shooting in Houston on Jan. 22.

The incident occurred just over one month after the school shooting in Newtown, CT.

Carlton Berry’s charges for two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon were dropped. Berry was one of the three people wounded in the Texas shooting.

Sara Kinney, a spokeswoman for the Harris County district attorney's office, claimed that Berry was merely a victim.

According to Seattle Pi, another man involved the confrontation, Jody Neal, told investigators that he argued with Trey Foster, one of the shooting suspects, on campus and the situation ended in gunfire.

According to CBS News, Foster shot Neal in the leg and abdomen.

Foster has been charged with two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Students told ABC Houston that they heard several gunshots on Jan. 22 during school hours. Three people total were wounded, including a maintenance man. There were no fatalities.
