Police detectives arrested two men and a juvenile in connection to an incident on April 14 when a police detective was shot at after a shooting at the Estella Maxie Apartment Complex.

Police said a lengthy investigation led to charges against Wilford Carpenter, 20; Jaqaun Davis, 21; and a 16-year-old male juvenile.

Carpenter and the juvenile were both charged with aggravated assault on a public servant, a first degree felony. All three individuals were also charged with tampering with physical evidence.

The shooting at the apartment complex resulted in damaged property, but no injuries, police said.

A Waco Police detective was in the area immediately after the shooting at the apartments and located a Jeep SUV used by the suspects.

While the detective was following the Jeep, the suspects inside the vehicle allegedly began to shoot at the detective with an AK-47.

The detective backed off after his vehicle was struck by the gunfire.

Police said Carpenter and the 16 year old juvenile were already in custody for previous "shooting related incidents" when they were served with arrest warrants for the attack on the detective.

Davis was arrested in Fort Worth for his warrant of tampering with physical evidence. Police said more charges could be filed against Davis after the investigation is complete.
