Two teenage suspects in a Harker Heights shooting are in Bell County Jail.
Police have charged Charlie Wesley Jones III, 19, and Guillermo Hernandez, 17, with aggravated assault with a firearm. Police apprehended the two Friday.
Justice of the Peace Bill Cooke arraigned Jones and Hernandez on Saturday, setting their bail at $100,000 each.
Police arrested the two in connection to an Oct. 23 shooting at a residence in the 100 block of Bobwhite Lane.
Police received a call of a disturbance about 7:05 p.m. the night of the shooting. While en route, police learned that one man had been shot.
When they arrived, police found a 19-year-old man with blood on his shirt and hands. He had been shot in the chest, according to an arrest affidavit.
The victim is recovering.
During the investigation, police learned that four people arrived at the shooting victim's home and indicated they wanted to fight the 19-year-old. The disagreement centered on a domestic issue involving a minor child, according to a news release.
The victim suggested the group discuss the problem in the backyard of the home, but they refused.
Witnesses told police a person later identified as Hernandez retrieved a handgun from a car and handed it to a man, later identified as Jones. Jones then shot the man in the chest. The suspects and two unidentified people then fled in a four-door Toyota.
Police initially believed Hernandez and Jones fled the state. However, on Friday police learned the two suspects were in Harker Heights. Police apprehended them at two residences in Harker Heights.
Police then were led to an area on of Ivy Mountain Road on Fort Hood where a police K9 team located a handgun believed to have been used in the assault.
