Man Arrested After Incident Which Caused Lockdown at Garrison ISD
According to a media release from the Nacogdoches County Sheriff’s Office (NCSO), deputies arrested one person involved in an altercation in Garrison which occurred on Thursday, January 13.
David Lawrence Davis II, 33, of Garrison, was charged with Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon, a second-degree felony.
Deputies were dispatched to the 700 block of Project Road in northeastern Nacogdoches County shortly before 12:40 p.m. on Thursday after receiving a report of an assault with a firearm. The initial call to law enforcement indicated a victim may have been shot. Once police arrived on scene, deputies found the victim, a 44-year-old Mount Enterprise man, had not been shot, but instead had been struck at least twice with the gun itself. The victim was taken to a local hospital to be treated for minor injuries.
Deputies spread out to search for Davis, who had reportedly fled the scene on foot. He was found shortly after 2 p.m. in a residence on FM 138, roughly a mile away from the scene of the altercation. He was taken into custody without further incident.
Garrison ISD, which sits between the site of the altercation and where the suspect was found, locked its campus down as a precaution until law enforcement could resolve the situation. Local businesses were also notified.
The Precinct 1 Constable’s Office, Texas Department of Public Safety state troopers, Central Heights and Garrison Volunteer Fire Departments also responded to the call.
Under the Texas Penal Code, second-degree felonies are punishable by between two and 20 years incarceration and/or up to $10,000 in fines.
