The DA’s office says the updates are regarding “the investigation and prosecution” in the case.

Jeremiah Tabb, 17, was arrested at a high school in Killeen on June 14 and was initially charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. An argument between two groups of teens escalated into gunfire, and police say Tabb was the one of people who fired shots. A 15-year-old was also in custody in connection with the shooting.

Police say Tabb was part of one of the groups and the 15-year-old was part of the other. On Tuesday, however, police say they’re dropping charges against both.

Meanwhile, police say White is still at large and should be considered armed and dangerous.
