Identity released of man believed to be connected to apartment shooting

Cameron William Bishop, 21, was arraigned Saturday morning by Hunt County Justice of the Peace Wayne Money.

His bond was set at $75,000.


The shooting happened Thursday at the Crossroads Apartments at in the 2900 block of Robin Road around 4 p.m.

Public Information Officer Kathy Lucas said when police arrived, they learned that a vehicle with three occupants pulled into the parking lot for a prearranged meeting with the suspect shortly before the shooting occurred. It is alleged that the suspect exited an apartment and began shooting at the occupants of the vehicle, striking one of the passengers in the back.

The injured passenger was driven to Hunt Regional Medical Center. The passenger who was shot is in stable condition and it is believed to be a non-life threatening injury.

Several hours later, the suspect, now known to be Bishop, arrived at the Greenville police station to speak with investigators about the incident. After speaking with investigators, he was arrested on an unrelated Delta County warrant and transported to the Hunt County Criminal Justice Center.

Bishop was also charged with three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, which is a second-degree felony and punishable by two-20 years in prison.
