“He said that continually, whenever (authorities) talked to him, that he didn’t do anything. But that wasn’t enough. Then they started their investigation based upon his statement and they realized he didn’t do anything,” Jones said.

Berry was expected to be released from the Harris County Jail later Monday, and Jones said he just wants to go home.

Foster made his initial court appearance Monday. He is being held on bonds totaling $100,000, and if he posts them, a judge ordered him subject to GPS monitoring and a curfew.

Quanell X, a community activist who is a spokesman for Foster’s family, said Foster told him Berry had nothing to do with the shooting. Berry and Foster apparently knew each other from school.

“It was inappropriate and wrong for Trey to have a pistol on campus,” he said.

Quanell X said Foster legally bought the .40-caliber handgun authorities say was used in the shooting at a sporting goods store in Houston. Foster took a class for a concealed handgun license but had not completed the process to get a license, he said.

Quanell X said Foster bought the gun to defend himself after he was shot in the face a couple of years ago and had recently been receiving threats. Quanell X said Foster panicked during the shooting.

“He was very remorseful and sorry that innocent people got shot,” he said.
