Charges dropped against campus shooting suspect

The Harris County district attorney has dropped all charges filed against Lone Star Community College shooting suspect, Carlton Berry, a spokeswoman for Harris County says.

Berry was charged with two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon following the campus shooting last week. The charges have been dismissed pending "further investigation."

The other suspect, Trey Foster, is being held in jail awaiting arraignment, which is scheduled for February 28, on two charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. The Harris County sheriff  is set to hold a news conference Monday at 3 p.m. ET to discuss the dropping of the charges against Berry.

      No, not at all. Why do you think it might be gang related?

      Why, because the suspects are named "Carlton" and "Trey"?

    FYet another innocent life ruined by our witch hunters we call the justice system. Welcome to America, where you are guilty until proven innocent, marriage means nothing unless you are gay, terrorists are the victim, victims are treated as criminals and the government can do what ever it wants to your private property. Is it just me or is the American dream starting to resemble a communist nightmare.

      It's just you, I assure you.
      All of the things you are whining about have been going on for decades...I fail to see why you think it just started four years ago.

      Ya I know it's been going on for years Banasy, the difference is communists were the enemy during the Nixon and Reagan years. My family has been victimized for generations but it just recently got worse.

      Yes, Andy, but based on my past experience with Hamsta, I know where this will head.

      Yes, Hamsta, communism has been the enemy of the US since the 40's.
      Is a communist victimizing your family?

    Hamsta, is this your ggggGrandfather?

    "The estate of Edward Wisner was donated to the city in 1914 as a 100-year charitable trust, giving the city a continuing income from mineral-rich marshlands."
    Nice man.

      He donated the use of the land, that does not mean the city or the feds own the land. The government did it to the American Indians and now they do it to there own citizens. That is my family's land and the government owes my family millions for use of the land and now they want to claim ownership because the greedy socialists want it all. It belongs to my family.

      Um, he willed the estate to someone other than your family; they own it. That's what a "donation" means.
      If your family is trying to contest his will, and has been since 1914, there must be a reason why he didn't want them to have it.
      The trust ends next year. Good luck.
