HARKER HEIGHTS, Texas (KWTX) A man whom an off-duty Harker Heights officer caught chasing and shooting at a woman in July was named in a two-count indictment Wednesday charging unlawful possession of a firearm and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon/repeat offender.

Ronnell Lamont Brown, 39, remained in the Bell County Jail Wednesday in lieu of bonds totaling $155,000.

The shooting was reported at around 9:25 p.m. on July 26 in the area of Travis Lane and Beeline Lane.

The unnamed victim was struck once in the buttocks and once in the ankle, police said.

She was taken to Scott & White Medical Center in Temple where she was taken into surgery, police said.

The man and woman “were in a dating relationship” and were arguing outside their home in the 900 block of Travis Lane when the woman said she was going to call 911, police said.

“Brown then threatened the female and retrieved a handgun, and chased her down the street shooting at her before the off duty police officer was able to intervene,” police said.
