A former student who allegedly shot and injured a principal at a school in Houston has been charged.
In a news release on Saturday, Houston police said that Dexter Harold Kelsey, 25, was charged with aggravated assault against a public servant and deadly conduct in the shooting of 36-year-old Eric Espinsosa on Friday at YES Prep Southwest Secondary.
Espinsosa was treated at a nearby hospital and was later released.
No students were harmed.
Police said Kelsey had fired a rifle at the glass entry door to the school to gain entry.
While attempting to alert teachers and students, Espinosa was struck in the lower back by a bullet, police said.
