Teen Girl Sexually Assaulted, Shot Multiple Times

An East Texas 14-year-old girl is in the hospital tonight. She was sexually assaulted and shot a number of times over the weekend.

The incident happened at about 2:30 Saturday morning. Authorities say two men and a juvenile boy attacked the girl, after taking her to the woods near FM 449.

Fortunately, the girl was able to get away and get help.

Authorities arrested all three suspects the same day.

The Harrison County Sheriff's Department says the girl was shot in the head, face, chest, and thigh, but she was still able to go to a neighbor's house to get help. That neighbor, who called 911, turned out to be the grandmother of one of the suspects, Brian O'Neal Jackson-Grant, 21. He is in jail and charged with sexual assault and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Jeremy Ramone Bailey, 18, is also charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Authorities are not releasing the name of the juvenile boy.

They say the girl did give officers information to help catch the suspects.

"During that time, she was losing consciousness because she had been shot several times," Bob Arthur, administrative chief deputy at the Harrison County Sheriff's Department, said. "She was shot several times, so she was giving us a little bit of information."

The sheriff's department is still investigating. They have not figured out a motive behind the attack or told us whether the girl knew the suspects.
