Wichita Falls, Texas - Two suspects were arrested in connection to a shooting that caused several schools to held on Red Alert.

35-year-old DeAmber Koerth and 23-year-old Marcus Wilson were arrested by Wichita Falls Police Officers in connection to a shooting that took place Wednesday morning in the 4800 block of Johnson Road. There were no injuries reported from the gunshots.

Koerth was arrested around 11:48 a.m. in the 2700 block of Palmetto. Koerth was charged with Abandoning/Endangering a Child, Tampering With or Fabricating Evidence and Evading Arrest in a Vehicle.

Wilson was arrested around 2:33 p.m. in the 2800 block of Parkview. Wilson was charged with Evading in a Vehicle and two unrelated warrants.

The arrests are the result of a shots fired call that the WFPD received on Wednesday morning. The disturbance  involved two vehicles, both of which had fled the scene in opposite directions prior to the officer's arrival. Multiple shell casing were found on scene.

One of the vehicles, occupied by a male and two females, drove to the police department.

While searching for the second vehicle, WFPD patrol officers attempted to stop a vehicle matching the description, but the vehicle fled and started to throw items out of the windows. The vehicle was occupied by two males and a female.

The vehicle came to a stop in the 2700 block of Palmetto and the two males fled on foot. The female, later identified as Koerth, was detained, while officers began searching the area for the males.

Wilson was located in the 2800 block of Parkview. The second male suspect has not been located, he is described as a Hispanic male with a ponytail and tattoos.

A firearm was also recovered.
