An 18-year-old suspect school shooter accused of injuring four people was released on bail on Thursday afternoon (7 October) and just hours later, he was seen celebrating at home with his family. Watch the news report below:


Timothy George Simpkins has been charged with three accounts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and was arrested on Wednesday (6 October).

The four people hurt in the Arlington, Texas school shooting included two teachers and two students.

One 15-year-old boy, identified as Zacchaeus Selby by a GoFundMe post, was critically injured, another student was grazed by a bullet, and a teacher, identified by students and sources as Calvin Pettit, was shot, as per Fox News.

However, hours after, he was seen celebrating at home as images emerged on social media of him chatting to relatives, holding a baby and standing in his kitchen, the Daily Mail reports.

Bail was set at $75,000 (£55,000) after Simpkins walked out of Tarrant County Correctional Center on Thursday afternoon due to a bondsman paying some of the fee.

The arrest affidavit states: "The witness intervened, breaking up the fight Simpkins was involved in. The witness was able to control the other individual involved in the altercation. This individual gave up and stopped being combative. When the witness turns around to check on Simpkins, Simpkins has produced a firearm."

The Tarrant County District's Attorney still has not filed a case against the teen, and his next court date has not yet been scheduled.

The shooting stemmed from a fight that broke out in a classroom, Arlington Assistant Police Chief Kevin Kolbye said at a news conference.

Two people were shot and two others had unspecified injuries, he said.

"This is not a random act of violence," he added, "This is not somebody attacking our school."

Timberview serves about 1,900 students in ninth through 12th grades. The sprawling complex opened in 2004.
