Berry was arrested soon after the Jan. 22 shootings at Lone Star College and charged with two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. He was shot in the leg during the attack.

Sara Kinney, a spokeswoman for the Harris County district attorney's office, said Monday that Berry was clearly a victim.

Another man wounded in the incident told investigators that he bumped into Trey Foster on campus, sparking an argument that escalated into gunfire. A maintenance worker also was wounded.

The 22-year-old Foster is charged with two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. He also is charged with resisting arrest in an earlier case.
