Following the mass shooting in Arlington, Texas Wednesday, police captured the gunman Timothy George Simpkins. Simpkins shot two people at Timberview High School around 9:15 AM.
After drawing and firing his weapon, Simpkins fled the scene. Police arrested him after he reportedly turned himself in. This came hours into his manhunt. Now, they expect to charge him with three counts of aggravated assault. The third comes as a result of a pregnant teacher who fell during the shooting.
Then, Texas Governor Greg Abbott made a statement about the shooting. “As law enforcement continues their investigation, our hearts go out to the victims of this senseless act of violence. Thank you to the law enforcement officers and first responders who arrived on the scene to help the victims and prevent further violence,” Abbott wrote. He involved the Texas Department of Safety to locate the gunman. “I ask all Texans to join Cecilia and me in praying for the victims, their families, and the entire Timberview High School community.”
As a result of posting his $75,00 bail, police released Simpkins from their custody.
