TYLER, TX (KLTV) -
A man arrested in January for his involvement in a Tyler shooting, has been indicted.
Ke’Avier Wilson-Hurd was indicted March 22 for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and tampering with physical evidence.
The shooting took place at the Rose Valley Apartment Homes off of NW Loop 323 in Tyler on a Friday evening in January.
Police say Armis Barnes, a 25-year-old of Tyler, Texas, was shot in the face. Family members of victim described the scene. "When she walked toward me her eye was messed up and he was yelling he's sorry it was an accident," said Bonnie Jones, claiming Ke'Avier Jarrod Wilson-Hurd had accidentally shot her cousin while the two were hanging out Friday night.
Barnes was taken to East Texas Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries. After surgery, she lost her right eye and was left with a broken nose and broken cheek bone.
Following an investigation, an arrest warrant for Ke'Avier Jarrod Wilson-Hurd, 20, was issued and he was taken into custody. Wilson-Hurd was transported to the Smith County Jail where he was booked in for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon on a $500,000 bond.
Wilson-Hurd has a previous record in Smith County. Most notably, he was charged in connection with a fatal shooting at P.T. Cole Park in Tyler in July 2013, which killed a young mother as she was playing with her child at the park. Wilson-Hurd was eventually no-billed on those charges and released, when a grand jury did not have enough evidence to pursue the charge in court.
Wilson-Hurd was also arrested in June 2010 for assault of a family member and August 2013 for unlawfully carrying a weapon.
