The Arlington teenager, a high school shooting suspect, was arrested again on Thursday for bond violation, confirmed
Arlington, TX – The 18-year-old Timothy Simpkins, who is accused of shooting and injuring four people during a school shooting in Timberview High School two months ago, was arrested again on Thursday for bond violation, local police department confirmed.
The Arlington Police Department confirmed that the Arlington teenager was arrested on Thursday for bond violation, but didn’t provide additional details about the arrest.
Simpkins bonded out of jail in October, just a few days after police said he opened fire inside Timberview High School in Arlington.
The incident report indicates that the shooting occurred after a fight between Simpkins and the 15-year-old Zaccaeus Selby. In the incident, Simpkins shot and critically injured Selby who later survived.
In the shooting, another student was grazed by a bullet and a teacher was shot. The fourth victim was another student who got injured in the chaos that happened right after the shooting incident.
Simpkins was charged with three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
Simpkins’ parents said that the fight happened because their son was bullied. However, the investigation showed that the bullying was not the reason for the shooting, something that was also confirmed by the Arlington police chief.
Metal detector wands and other enhanced security measures were added at Timberview High School.
