Houston College Shooting Suspect Now Considered Fugitive

A suspect in a Houston-area college campus shooting has been declared a fugitive after he failed to appear at a scheduled court appearance.

A bench warrant has been issued for 22-year-old Trey Foster's arrest. Harris County sheriff's spokeswoman Christina Garza said Foster was declared a fugitive after he failed to appear for a scheduled Tuesday court date in Houston.

Foster had been free on $50,000 bond after he was charged with aggravated assault in the Jan. 22 shooting at a Lone Star College campus north of downtown Houston.

Authorities believe 25-year-old Jody Neal was shot after bumping into Foster. The two men argued at first but went their separate ways.  Investigators say they encountered each other 30 minutes later, argued again and Foster fired at Neal. Two others were wounded.

Foster was the focus of a state-wide manhunt in January after he fled the Houston area and was taken into custody in Plano. Records showed Foster had previously lived in North Texas, in Denton and Carrollton.
