2nd suspect in Lone Star College shooting arrested in Plano

Posted: Updated:

The story of the Lone Star College shooting keeps changing, but some work by the US Marshals Service on Friday may help get to the facts.
As part of the Gulf Coast Violent Offenders Task Force, US Marshals captured 22-year-old Trey Foster, identified as the second suspect in Tuesday's campus shooting.

Foster, charged with two counts of Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon, was found in Plano shortly after midnight. Deputy Alfredo Perez says Foster possessed a gun, but was arrested without incident. He was taken directly to detectives with the Harris County Sheriff's Office arriving at 6:30 a.m. Foster was then moved to the Harris County Jail at 9 a.m.

Harris County Deputies had already charged 22-year-old Carlton Berry in connection with the campus shooting, but Berry denies he was the gunman.  Court records show that Berry claimed he was with Foster at the time of the shooting, and that Foster's target was a man that had bumped into him about 30 minutes before shots were fired.

Three people were wounded in the shooting.  Court records identify the victims as Jody Neal, a Lone Star College student, and Bobby Cliburn, a campus maintenance worker.  Carlton Berry was also shot, but he claimed, at least at one point, that he shot himself in the hip accidentally. Investigators will no doubt be asking if the bullet came from Foster's gun.
Berry became the suspect because Neal identified him as the shooter, but investigators say Neal changed his statement to implicate Foster.  Berry and Foster were together at the time of the shooting, and were both dressed in red shirts, and Neal claimed he got the two men confused.

Investigators still have both Foster and Berry charged in the campus shooting.  It's unknown if they plan to drop charges against Berry.
