Texarkana Texas Police Department are investigating a shooting that happened a little before 6:00 on Sunday evening near the intersection of W. 16th and Peach Streets. A 17 year old girl suffered non-life threatening injuries when she was shot in both arms during a gun fight between two males. One of the two guys, a 16 year old juvenile, was arrested for Deadly Conduct later Sunday night and a felony Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon warrant has been issued for 17 year old Ge’Keyvun Minneweather.
Detective Aaron Wafford has learned that Minneweather showed up on Peach Street to fight with the male juvenile. There was apparently some kind conflict between the two because of an incident that happened last week. The two got into an argument and, after one of them spit on the other one, they both produced handguns and started shooting at each other. It was during this exchange that the victim was hit. Because she was standing near the juvenile during all of this, it is believed that Minneweather was the one who fired the shots that struck her. Both Minneweather and the juvenile fled the scene before we got there. The victim was transported to Wadley Regional Medical Center for treatment. There were several residences with innocent people inside them – and at least one car – in the immediate area that were struck by stray bullets.
If you know where Minneweather is, please call us at 903-798-3116 or Texarkana Area Crime Stoppers at 903-793-STOP.
