UPDATED 10/7, 2:45 p.m. ET: Timothy Simpkins, the 18-year-old alleged Timberview High School shooter, has been released on $75,000 bond from the Tarrant County Jail.
Simpkins is facing three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, per a regional CBS report. Prior to Simpkins turning himself in on Wednesday, local authorities had searched for the alleged shooter for hours, with the school placed on lockdown.
Meanwhile, a spokesperson for Simpkins’ family has shared a statement alleging that the 18-year-old had been attacked and bullied.

According to Arlington Police Assistant Chief Kevin Kolbye, the shooting occurred on the second floor of the school around 9:15 a.m. and left four people injured. One person has minor injuries, and three were taken to a local hospital.
Arlington Police took to Twitter this afternoon to announce that the suspect, an 18-year-old student who feld the scene after the shooting, has been taken into custody.
“The suspect has been taken into custody without incident and charged with multiple counts of Aggravated Assault with a gun,” the department wrote. “Most students have been safely evacuated from Timberview High School. Thank you for everyone’s help.”
CNN reports police believe the shooting “is not a random act of violence.”
“This is not somebody attacking our schools,” Arlington Police Assistant Chief Kevin Kolbye told reporters. “This is a student, we believe right now, preliminary, that it was a student that got into a fight and drew a weapon.”
Shortly after arriving on the scene, Arlington Police informed parents that students would be bussed to a reunification point once the school was “completely secured.”
Students at the school have taken to social media to post footage showing them fleeing the building as gunshots rang out.
