Charges Dropped Against Shooter at Texas College
HOUSTON (AP) -- Prosecutors have dropped assault charges against a man who was among three people wounded in a shooting at a Houston-area college.
Carlton Berry was arrested soon after the Jan. 22 shootings at Lone Star College and charged with two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Berry was shot in the leg.
Sara Kinney, a spokeswoman for the Harris County district attorney's office, said Monday that Berry was clearly a victim.
Another man wounded in the incident told investigators that he bumped into Trey Foster on campus, sparking an argument that escalated into gunfire. A maintenance worker was also wounded.
Foster was arrested Friday 250 miles away in suburban Dallas. The 22-year-old is charged with resisting arrest and two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
Authorities initially believed victims were caught in a crossfire between the two men.

May 24, 2013 17:29 GMT
MOORE, Okla. (AP) -- Public agencies in Moore have opened streets to residents and resumed mail delivery to as many addresses as possible.
At a news conference Friday, police said residents in the hardest-hit areas can go back into their neighborhoods without having to deal with police checkpoints. Some road closures may still occur as utility crews work to restore service.
Moore's postmaster said 85 percent of mail delivered from the Moore station is being delivered, and that mail deliveries from the Santa Fe station are up to 95 percent.
For those whose mail is not being delivered, those with ZIP codes 73153 and 73160 can pick up mail at the Airport Finance unit on Air Cargo Road.
Those in ZIP code 73170 can go to the Santa Fe station for their mail.
