Longview Police now report that a 21 year-old man is being charged with second-degree assault, after he allegedly used a pellet gun to shoot a 14 year-old girl in the leg. Officers, Deputies and aid personnel responded to Miller’s Market shortly before 11 pm, when it was reported that the wounded girl had been found in the parking lot. Officers got to the scene and learned that the shooting had actually taken place outside at a nearby apartment, located in the 700 block of 32nd Avenue. Containment was set up, and several people who’d been in the area were detained. Interviews were conducted, and it was learned that the victim had been in a verbal argument with a 20 year-old woman, just prior to the shooting. The investigation eventually lead police to William C. Goldsberry, 21, the resident of the apartment. Investigators say that Goldsberry is an associate of the victim, and allegedly admitted to shooting her from his living room window. A Sheridan pellet gun and a container of pellets were taken from the apartment, while Goldsberry was arrested and booked. The girl was taken to St. John Medical Center to be treated for her wound.
