According to the TJC Press Statement, TJC Campus Police has also issued warrants for two other individuals. Nine other students face Student Code of Conduct violations, and the names won’t be disclosed due to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).
“Bringing firearm on campus illegally and discharging those firearms on campus is irresponsible and dangerous,” said TJC Police Chief Randy Melton.” These defendants purposefully committed criminal acts and put other students at risk in the process. TJC has worked tireless to bring the appropriate individuals to justice.”
According to TJC Campus Police, they have arrested a student in connection with the shooting that took place on campus on Sept. 12. TJC student Tyron Lamon Shead, 19, was arrested on Thursday, Nov. 10, on campus. He faces two third degree felony charges: possession of prohibited weapon on campus, tamper/fabricated physical evidence with intent to impair.
The shooting occurred outside of Sledge Hall the week of homecoming. Shead is currently in the Smith County Jail.
