It was on Thursday that the Texas school shooting suspect Timothy George Simpkins was released, posting his $75,000 bail.
He'll be monitored by GPS, undergo regular drug and alcohol testing, and be confined to his home until his trial date.
But the alleged gunman received a welcome home party celebrating his freedom. This revelation comes from The Sun which credited an Instagram account seemingly related to Simpkins that posted the picture.
Wednesday's shooting at Timberview High School left three victims shot, and a pregnant teacher injured from a fall. Simpkins reportedly fled the scene and turned himself in to the police, where he was charged with three aggravated assault with a deadly weapon charges.
The Fort Worth Star-Telegram mentioned how a 15-year-old victim was shot four times and is in an induced coma while recovering in critical condition at a hospital.
Yesterday, the Arlington Police confirmed a video captured by another student on the scene is in fact legitimate and a part of their investigation. It showed Simpkins and another student fighting.
A witness told police that "once the fight was broken up, the juvenile witness observed Simpkins go to an orange backpack and retrieve a firearm. The witness observed Simpkins point the firearm at the juvenile victim and shoot 7 to 8 times."
English teacher Calvin Pettitt, hospitalized after taking a bullet, was shot in the back and it barely missed hitting his main aorta artery. The educator reportedly ran to the classroom to try and help people in distress.
The family previously said Simpkins was bullied and robbed at the school: "We have to take a look at the fact that bullying is real, and it takes us all, and I do apologize. We ask as a family for forgiveness of any type of hurt."
According to the Dallas Morning News, beyond house arrest, Simpkins can't possess a gun, must stay 1,000 feet away from Timberview High School, and he can't contact anyone who was injured.
