Austin police arrest suspect in slaying, random gunfire
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Police say a man suspected in a fatal shooting at his Austin apartment complex has been arrested after two people were later injured in random gunfire at passing vehicles.
Travis County jail records show 29-year-old Charles Curry was being held Friday on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Police believe Curry was driving and shooting at vehicles Wednesday, leaving two women slightly hurt.
Assistant Chief Joe Chacon says a murder charge would be filed against Curry in Monday’s slaying of Christian Meroney, who lived at the same complex.
Highway security video led to a vehicle belonging to Curry, whose bond was $250,000.
Online records don’t list an attorney for Curry, who briefly worked for a political consultant and as a temporary employee for State Sen. Joan Huffman.
