2 arrested in shooting case – Wise County Messenger

Two Decatur teenagers were arrested this week in connection to last months shooting at a home in Alvord.

Christopher Bryan

Christopher Lee Bryan, 18, and David Jackson Huggins, 17, were arrested late Wednesday, and both have been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and engaging in organized criminal activity.

Bryan has also been charged with theft of a firearm, possession of a controlled substance in penalty group 2 less than 1 gram and possession of marijuana less than 2 ounces.

The shooting took place at a home in the 300 block of North Wickham Street on Aug. 7. Rhett Barclay, 17, was shot once while Brent Dixon, 41, was shot multiple times. Both survived their injuries.

It all has to do with drug trafficking and drug activity, Wise County Sheriff Lane Akin said.

Akin said evidence has been collected that ties the two teens to the shooting.

He added the sheriffs office is also pursuing charges on a 16-year-old who investigators believe is connected to the shooting.

David Huggins

According to the arrest affidavit, Dixon told an investigator he was confronted by two people in a bedroom inside the home. One man had a pistol and the other a long gun.

Brent said he was shot three times while running away from the subjects, the affidavit states.

The gunfire woke up Barclay, who told investigators that he was shot while running out the back door.

Investigators later learned about multiple suspects and spoke to one of them, who was not identified in the affidavit. He said he was in the car with Bryan, Huggins and a fourth suspect he refused to identify.

The unidentified person said they pulled up in an alley behind the home, and Bryan and Huggins went inside. After three shots were heard, Bryan and Huggins ran back to the car and said Bryan had shot Dixon with the pistol and Huggins had shot Barclay with a .22 rifle. They then went back to Huggins home, according to the affidavit.

Akin said the investigation is ongoing, and its possible more arrests could be made.

He complimented the work of his investigators to bring about the two arrests in the case.

They continuously sought evidence, he said. They never gave up until they got enough evidence to make an arrest.

Both Bryan and Huggins remained in the Wise County Jail late Friday with bond set at $85,750 and $50,000, respectively.
