Evans High School student arrested after shooting, threatening to kill police

Evans High school student Joshua Evans is charged with one count of attempted murder and one count each of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and unlawful use of a weapon.

The shooting happened about 2 a.m. on Tuesday.

The Evans family told ABC affiliate KXAN that Evans had a history of mental health problems and was taking medication for his mental illness.

He was arrested and is being held in the Warren County Jail in lieu of $100,000 bail.

Evancs family said they had been told Evans would be staying at a friend’s home until the charges were filed.
