GEORGETOWN, Texas (KXAN) — Georgetown police have arrested the suspect in an incident on Saturday morning, involving shots fired at an officer’s vehicle.
According to the Georgetown Police Department, at around 5:42 a.m., an officer responded a report of three men arguing in the 1500 block of Walnut Street. The officer said when he turned onto Walnut Street, a green laser was pointed at his windshield and a bullet immediately crashed through.
The officer was able to take cover and the bullet hit the side of the car headrest.
GPD says the suspected shooter is Malcolm Watts, 22. The officer says he was able to exit and get Watts to drop the weapon that he was waving in the street. Watts was then taken into custody and booked into the Williamson County Jail.
Although the police vehicle was shot multiple times, the officer was not struck, GPD says. He received minor injuries from glass breakage, however.
The department notes that no officers fired their weapons and that Watts was unharmed. He is charged with felony aggravated assault against a public servant and felony evading arrest. His bonds were set at $300,000 and $100,000.
GPD is still investigating and says more details are forthcoming.
