Texarkana, Texas Police were dispatched at 5:13 PM to a residence in the 2000 block of W 17th St. Once on scene, officers located a 14 year old male, suffering from a gunshot wound to the leg.

According to a police press release, the juvenile was transported to a local hospital for treatment. The initial investigation concluded that the juvenile victim was playing basketball in the street on W 17th with several other people. Devonta Henderson allegedly walked up to the group and began causing a disturbance over someone owing Henderson five dollars. Henderson allegedly then pulled out a pistol and told them he would shoot someone over $5. Henderson then reportedly fired the pistol toward the ground, causing the bullet to ricochet and strike the juvenile in the leg. According to police, Henderson fled the scene on foot.

After interviewing multiple witnesses, detectives issued a felony warrant for Devonta Henderson AKA “Vonte” for aggravated assault. Henderson is a 25 year old black male, 5’5”, 125 lbs., and has tattoos on both forearms. Anyone with information on Henderson should contact crime stoppers or the police department.

The juvenile who was struck in the leg is listed in stable condition and is expected to make a full recovery.
