LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - One of the men injured during a shootout that left three people dead in Longview on April 6 has now been booked into jail.

The Longview Police Department said Jakerion Allison, 17, of Longview has been charged with three counts of aggravated assault causing serious bodily injury. Allison was shot during a shootout that took place on Beaumont Street. He has been in Good Shepherd Medical Center since the incident took place but was released to police on Wednesday.

Allison remains in the Gregg County Jail with bond set at $300,000.

Police responded to shots fired at a residence in the 800 block of Beaumont Street in Longview shortly after 5 p.m. on Sunday, April 6. When officers arrived, they found one man dead on the front porch of the home and two others injured.

Justice of the Peace B.H. Jameson said three people died as a result of the shooting. Jameson pronounced Anthony Anderson dead on Beaumont Street. Tavarus Glaspie was pronounced dead at Good Shepherd Medical Center around 9 p.m. A third body was found in the parking lot of Denny's on S. Eastman Road.

Just 30 minutes after police responded to the shooting on Beaumont Street, they received a 911 call from Denny's. At the scene, they found a white male dead in the passenger's seat of the car and a black male who had been shot. The driver of the car, 22-year-old Jacorey Williams, of Carthage, was still at the scene when police arrived.

During the investigation, police arrested Williams for tampering with evidence. Although police would not confirm if he was a shooter, they say he admitted to throwing the gun out of the car.

Witnesses told KLTV a white car drove up to the home on Beaumont Street. The driver of the car then got out and spoke to someone before multiple shots were fired, both from the car and from the house. Neighbors said that they heard at least 40 shots fired during the shooting.

On Monday, April 7, a handgun was recovered in grass in the 1000 block of Lilly Street, about a quarter of a mile from the scene on Beaumont Street. Police believe the weapon was the one used in the shooting.
