What started as stolen firearms charges in Brownfield is now becoming a full blown investigation of four Brownfield men and how they may or may not fit into a shooting that occurred in Seagraves early Sunday morning.
As the investigation continues, the Seagraves Police Department may be looking into racking up other charges for the four individuals involved including second-degree felony attempted murder.
Arrested were Brownfield High School student and standout athlete Shacolby Hill, 18,and BHS graduates Kendrick Davis,22, Chris Davis,24 and Dominic Fisher,20, all of Brownfield.
Seagraves Chief of Police Neal Shaw said that according to witnesses, at about 4:30 a.m. Sunday, the four men allegedly showed up at a party at a residence located in the 1100 block of 7th St. in Seagraves.
“They were told they were not welcome at the party,” Shaw said.
Neal said witnesses stated that a physical altercation broke out and that all four individuals left the party and went back to a black Dodge Charger.
One of the individuals got in on the driver’s side of the vehicle while the other three allegedly went to the trunk of the car and pulled out firearms.
Neal would not divulge who allegedly got into the car.
Witnesses then stated three of the individuals allegedly started shooting at the residence hitting the only injured person involved in the incident.
Shaw said the victim, who was standing in the front yard of the residence at the time of the shooting, is a male, but Shaw wasn’t sure of his age. He also said the victim was hit by one piece of buckshot in the lower abdominal area.
Neal said the victim was taken to University Medical Center for treatment via airlift and is currently listed in stable condition.
“All I can tell you about the victim is that he is currently in stable condition,” said Shaw.
According to Brownfield Police Department records, at about 5:15 a.m. on Sunday, a member of Gaines County law enforcement contacted the Brownfield Police Department asking for assistance finding a black 2010 Dodge Charger occupied by four men and suspected to be headed to Brownfield. The four men were wanted for questioning regarding the shooting.
At 5:27 a.m. Brownfield Police made contact with the subjects in the 1200 block of N. A St. where they were allegedly found in possession of seven of the 12 firearms that were reported stolen on July 21 from a residence near the 1300 block of Cheryl Ln.
Three of the individuals were arrested on state jail felony charges of theft of a firearm while the fourth, Fisher, was charged with an additional third-degree felony charge of unlawful possession of firearm by a felon.
Bond for Fisher was set at $12,500 for both charges while the other three subjects have a bond amount of $5,000 each.
As of news time the four subjects were out on bond.
