Jason Hendrix, 43, made his initial appearance at Warren County Justice Court on Wednesday in relation to an incident which left a 16-year-old suffering from a gunshot wound on Tuesday. Hendrix is being charged with two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
Judge Edwin Woods, Jr. set Hendrix’s bond at $1 million per charge.
“Now, I might point out that this investigation is still ongoing and it is very likely that additional charges may be presented at Grand Jury time,” stated Sheriff Pace. “We have a team of investigators that are conducting interviews, that are trying to get to the bottom of what actually has transpired in the period immediately preceding the shooting.”
The 16-year-old gunshot victim seems to be doing well, according to Pace. “It could have been a lot worse than it was.”
On Tuesday, just after 4:30 p.m., Warren County Sheriff’s Office received a call of shots fired and a wounded individual at the 6600 block of Halls Ferry Road.
Upon arriving at the scene, deputies found two teenage males in a vehicle, one of which had suffered a gunshot wound to the leg. The injured teen was transported to Merit Health River Region for treatment.
Warren County Sheriff’s Office ascertained the teenagers were shot at by a home owner. Sargent Stacy Rollinson executed a search warrant on the Hendrix’s property.
During the search, a tip came in that led to Hendrix, who was still in possession of a firearm which was believed to be the one used in the incident.
Hendrix was located and taken into custody by Warren County law enforcement.
