Child Support Argument Lead to Shooting on Parish Street

WICHITA FALLS - Wichita Falls Police say an argument over child support lead to the shooting yesterday afternoon near Rhea Road.

19-year-old Steven Tyler Sluder is facing two counts of deadly conduct. His bonds total $50,000.

Police were called to Parish street around 3:30 yesterday in reference to a shots fired call. There, a woman told police that she and Sluder got into an argument over the phone over child support payments and child custody.

According to an arrest affidavit, the woman told officers that Sluder told her on the phone quote, "I'm coming over there and I'm bringing my AR-15 with me." Once Sluder arrived at the home, police say two men confronted Sluder asking if he was going to fight them or shoot them. Officers said as the men turned to walk away, Sluder fired a single shot in their direction and left the scene. Police said the altercation was recorded on video by a security camera.

Around 7 last night, Police say Sluder called dispatch and said he wanted to speak with officers. He also told dispatch that he was at his grandfather's home on harbor road near fairway. When police arrived, officers had dispatch call him back and asked Sluder to step outside with his hands in the air. Sluder did so without incident and was taken into custody.

He's previously been arrested on drug charges after police executed a search warrant at his apartment last year. Police say inside his apartment, officers seized several pounds of marijuana and also several vacuum sealed bags of  so-called cannabis wax, or marijuana dabs.
