A Wichita County arrest affidavit sheds more light into Tuesday's shooting in downtown Wichita Falls.

Twenty-seven old Jason Justin-Lionel Williams remains in the Wichita County jail on a charge of aggravated assault.

His bond is $150,000.

The shooting happened around noon at the intersection of 14th Street and Burnett Street.

Police say 25 year old Bobby Hardeman suffered a gunshot wound to his back.

According to an arrest affidavit Williams says after his home was burglarized on Sunday, two black men were caught on a neighbor's surveillance camera putting one of the stolen items in a dumpster and Williams says Hardeman was one of the men.

Williams says he tracked Hardeman down at a man's house but Hardeman quickly left in a vehicle and Williams says he followed trying to get the tag number.

He says Hardeman's vehicle stopped in front of a home on Burnett and two men started arguing about the burglary.

Police say Williams claimed Hardeman drew a gun and fired first, so he returned fire and left when he saw Hardeman fall to the ground.

Williams says he left the scene and headed to a friend's home where he called 911 and waited for police.

Police have interviewed more than half a dozen people in this case.

Williams was sentenced to two days in jail in January for unlawfully carrying a weapon.
