TTPD investigators sort out shooting investigation; arrest 3 Three men have been arrested following an investigation into Thursday night shooting in Texarkana Texas.
Jerry Houff, 48, of Texarkana, Texas, Vincent Edmond, 45, of Mesquite, Texas, and Jeremy Heard, 22, of Dallas, Texas, were all booked into the Bi-State Justice Center after Texarkana Texas police investigators sorted out a domestic situation in the 2200 block of W. 16th Street in Texarkana, Texas.
Shortly after 5 p.m. Thursday, officers from the Texarkana Texas Police Department were called to the 2200 block of West 16th Street in reference to a possible shooting.
Officers discovered the location of the incident, but no victim or suspect. Within minutes of their arrival, however, officers were called to a local hospital, where one person was being treated for a gunshot wound and another for assault-type injuries.
A second call sent officers to the Bi-State Justice Center to speak with a third man about the same incident. All injuries sustained were non-life threatening in nature.
During the investigation, detectives learned Houff entered the residence of his former mother-in-law - without her permission - to speak to his ex-wife, while armed with a .38 cal. pistol.
Upon entry, Houff was confronted by Vincent Edmond, 45, of Mesquite, Texas, who disarmed him.
The two continued to struggle, while exiting the residence.
Once outside, Edmond gave the pistol to Houff’s son, Jeremy Heard, who then attempted to intervene by firing a single shot from the pistol in the direction of Edmond, who was not struck.
At this point, Edmond produced a 9mm pistol and shot at Heard, striking him two times in his upper body.
Houff and Heard then left the scene to seek treatment for their injuries at a local hospital, while Edmond met officers at the Bi-State Justice Center.
Once all the facts were sorted out, the following charges were filed:
Jerry Houff was charged with burglary of a habitation, with a bond of $50,000.
Jeremy Heard was charged with deadly conduct, with a bond of $50,000.
Vincent Edmond was charged with aggravated assault, with a bond of $50,000.
All three subjects were booked into jail at the Bi-State Justice Center. No other arrests are expected.
