Suspect in Timberview High School shooting arrested, faces aggravated assault charges
SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The suspect in Wednesday morning’s Timberview High School shooting has been placed into police custody.
18-year-old Timothy George Simpkins turned himself Wednesday afternoon.
Earlier morning, police responded to an active shooter situation at the Timberview High School in Arlington, Texas. Four people were injured in the incident, including two students that were shot. Police say this was “not a random act of violence,” but believe the shooting occurred after a fight broke out between Simpkins and another student. Footage of the fight has been circulating on social media.
Simpkins was booked in Arlington Jail and his bail is set at $75,000. He faces three charges of aggravated assault.
