BELTON - A grand jury indicted a 17-year-old Killeen teenager on a felony assault charge Wednesday for allegedly shooting a 16-year-old boy three times in August.

The jury indicted Lashown Toure McCombs on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon with bodily injury and possession of cocaine, less than one gram, in connection to an Aug. 4 incident in the 800 block of West Mary Jane Lane.

McCombs also was indicted on a charge of attempted burglary of a habitation July 20 in connection to an alleged April 22 burglary in Killeen.

The shooting occurred during a fight that involved numerous people in the front yard of a house, according to an arrest affidavit. While fighting the 16-year-old, McCombs drew a handgun and shot him three times.

Emergency personnel airlifted the alleged victim to Scott & White Hospital, where he has since been discharged.

McCombs fled the scene in a vehicle. An officer later spotted the vehicle, and saw a man later identified as McCombs exit the car and walk quickly away.

The officer detained McCombs and performed a pat-down search. The officer found a loaded handgun and a small amount of suspected cocaine, an arrest affidavit states.

If convicted, McCombs could face up to 20 years in prison.

McCombs remains in Bell County Jail on a $325,000 bond. He also has been charged with a misdemeanor gun charge.

The grand jury also indicted an 18-year-old Killeen man for allegedly retaliating against a 16-year-old Killeen High School student who informed police about students in possession of marijuana at the school.

Matthew David Smith has been charged with obstruction or retaliation in connection to a Sept. 28 incident near KHS.

Smith is not a student, according to Assistant District Attorney Murff Bledsoe. However, he was present during an afternoon altercation on Santa Fe Avenue where he allegedly struck and threw the 16-year-old to the ground. Prior to the alleged assault, Smith asked if the 16-year-old "ratted them out," an arrest affidavit states.

If convicted, Smith could face up to 20 years in prison. Smith remains in Bell County Jail on a $20,000 bond.

Clifton Woods, 42, of Killeen, on a charge of possession of methamphetamine, less than one gram.
