Police: Suspect treated for gunshot wound then jailed

A man was treated for a gunshot wound to his leg then taken to the Wichita County Jail on assault charges in connection with an incident Monday, said Officer Harold McClure, public information officer with the Wichita Falls Police Department.

Perrion Lavell Warrior, 46, was charged with three counts of aggravated assault family violence in connection with the incident. His bond was set at $60,000 and he was being held Tuesday in the Wichita County Jail.

According to reports:

Police were called to the 500 block of Marconi to check on reports of shots fired about 10 p.m.

Officers talked to a 44-year-old woman who said she was threatened by her live-in boyfriend. She said he was intoxicated and they were arguing in the bedroom.

Her 24-year-old daughter lives next door and came over when she heard the commotion. At about the same time, the victim’s 22-year-old son showed up.

The woman’s children arrived and found the suspect holding a knife to the woman’s throat.

Both children asked the suspect to put the knife down and tried to get him to leave. He threatened them, and said they would all be dead before he left.

The son left the room, came back with a handgun, and shot Warrior once in the left leg.

The suspect was taken to the emergency room in a private vehicle, where police took him into custody and then to jail. His injury was not considered life threatening.

The assault victim’s son does not face any charges for the incident because the shooting was considered self-defense.
