PLANO The suspected gunman in the Lone Star College campus shooting in Houston was arrested overnight in Plano.

Trey Foster, 22, was taken arrested around 1 a.m. Friday and driven back to Houston.

Foster was charged with aggravated assault in connection to the Tuesday shooting that left three people wounded Tuesday in north Harris County. He has a criminal history that includes charges of resisting arrest and possession of a prohibited weapon.

Police also arrested 22-year-old Carlton Berry, who was charged with same crime. Berry was injured in the shooting and treated at Ben Taub Hospital.

However, according to court documents, Berry's arrest may have been a mistake. According to the documents, he identified the shooter as his friend, Foster.

Berry told police that on the day of the shooting, he and Foster were walking on campus when a man named Jody Neal bumped into his friend, spurring a brief argument between the two men. Thirty minutes later, the three once again crossed paths near the Academic Building, which is when Foster pulled out a gun, Berry said.

Berry, Neal and a bystander were injured in the shooting. While investigators originally thought Berry's wound to the buttocks may have happened as he attempted to put a gun back in his pants, no gun was found on the scene or on Berry.

And while Neal initially identified Berry as the shooter, he later told police it was Foster, saying both men were wearing red shirts at the time of the shooting.

There is no word yet on whether charges against Berry will be dropped.
