WICHITA FALLS, Texas (KAUZ) – A man tried for a Studio E shooting in August 2020 is now back in jail.
Alton Mackey was reportedly arrested again on Monday for a warrant and an escape. The warrant was issued after Mackey failed to show up for his pre-trial for fatal conduct – discharging a firearm, according to court documents.
Police said they approached a house on Monday where they believed Mackey was staying. An officer near the backyard saw several open windows, and Mackey allegedly jumped out of one.
A police report says Mackey then fled the scene, leading officers on a short foot chase before taking him into custody. He remains jailed on a total bail of $352,501.
Mackey was originally arrested in August 2020 in connection with a shooting at Studio E.
According to a report from Wichita Falls police, Mackey fought and spilled into the parking lot, resulting in the shooting.
A witness at the scene reported that he ran out of the building after hearing gunshots and saw a man walk past him in the parking lot with a gun, followed by the sound of more gunfire.
The witness reportedly identified Mackey as one of the men involved in the incident.
Officers reportedly obtained a Snapchat video of the shooting that corroborates the eyewitness account and confidential information from informants.
No injuries were reported in connection with the shooting.
