High Point Village suspect receives lower bond

Local News

WICHITA FALLS (KFDX/KJTL)— One of the three men responsible for the High Point Village shooting in November has his bond lowered.

Julian Byrd’s bond is lowering from $1 million to $225 thousand.

He is the last of the three men to get their bond lowered after all 3 were indicted for the murder of Edward Collins.

Byrd will also have an ankle monitor and curfew.

Police describe the shooting as a drug deal gone bad.

Byrd’s attorney said he got out of the car before shots were fired, so he is arguing Byrd should not have a higher bond than the other two.

Authorities said Byrd allegedly set up the drug deal.

The prosecutor played a jail surveillance video showing Byrd assaulted another inmate a few days after Byrds’ arrest arguing Byrd poses a risk to others.
