The Texarkana Texas Police arrested three juvenile males ages 13, 14, and 16 after it was reported they were shooting at another boy on Cowhorn Creek. The teens ran but were captured at Central Mall. Officers discovered two guns, one was stolen out of Illinois and the other an air-gun, and a small amount of marijuana.
We arrested three teenage boys (ages 13, 14, and 16) the other night after getting a 911 call that they were shooting at another boy near a hotel on Cowhorn Creek. The caller said that they had just left the area and were now running across the Central Mall parking lot.
Officers Jonathan Price and Kevin Cornelius were close by and got there within a few seconds. The three boys saw them coming and tried to duck into one of the Dillard’s loading docks to hide, but they’d already been spotted. They tried to run again, but the officers were able to catch them before they could get far.
The 16 year old had a backpack with him that had two handguns (one of which turned out to have been stolen in Illinois), a replica air pistol, and a small container of marijuana in it.
They were arrested and transported to JDC. All of them were charged with Evading Arrest, and the one with the backpack was also charged with Deadly Conduct-Discharging a Firearm, Theft of a Firearm, Unlawful Carrying a Weapon, and Possession of Marijuana.
