Police Solve Case Where Man was Shot in the Face

SAN ANGELO, TX — Tramarcia George and Kyeshia Hornsby have been arrested on aggravated assault with a deadly weapon charges and more details have been released through court documents.

According to court documents, on November 10, 2022, at 8:32 a.m., the San Angelo Police Department responded to the 300 block of East 13th Street in reference to a "subject down" who was a shooting victim. Investigators spoke with responding officers who said the victim suffered gunshot wounds to the face and torso area and had been transported to Shannon Medical Center for treatment.

A sergeant with the SAPD suggested that a possible location where the shooting happened was on the same block of 13th Street.

The investigator spoke with a witness who said the victim was banging on his front door asking for help. The witness said he found the victim lying on the ground, bloody, and wrapped in a towel. The victim told him, “I need help,” and pointed down the street. The witness told investigators the victim said he was beat up and then added with a shortness of breath, “El Negro”. 


Approximately 30 minutes prior to the victim knocking on the witness’s door, he observed Kyeshia Hornsby, who lived in the house down the street place a small child in a small, light grey, Mitsubishi SUV, which was parked in the driveway.

A San Angelo Police detective then spoke with an officer who had made contact with the victim. This officer told the detective that the victim was found in the front yard of a residence on the 300 block of E. 13th St. wrapped in a towel. This officer also said the victim had been shot three times and that the victim had previously informed her that he was shot by a suspect he only knew as “El Negro” in a house on East 13th Street.

The victim had gunshot wounds on his face, sternum, and left thigh. Two bullets were lodged in the victim’s right shoulder and left thigh, according to court documents.

A search warrant was executed on the victim’s house where what appeared to be fresh blood stains were discovered on the victim’s bed and floor. Investigators observed a spent 9mm shell casing lying on the floor of the victim’s bedroom and a live 9mm bullet was lying on the floor of the front bedroom. Mail was observed lying in the front bedroom that belonged to Hornsby and Tremarcia George.

Investigators spoke with another witness who owns the residence. She said she lives there with the victim and with Hornsby, George, and Hornsby’s three children. This witness said she was not present when the victim was shot, did not know who shot the victim, or where Hornsby, George, and Hornsby’s three children had escaped. This witness also said she owned a silver in color Mitsubishi SUV that was gone as well.

A San Angelo police officer located the SUV parked in the parking lot of the Red Roof Inn, located on the 4200 block of S. Bryant Blvd. Video footage showed Hornsby park and abandon the SUV and get into a red in color newer model SUV at 11:33 a.m. The footage did not show anyone else with Hornsby when she left the vehicle.

The driver of the red SUV was located and said she was friends with Hornsby. She said Hornsby drove the Mitsubishi SUV to her residence and asked her for a ride to pick up her two children who were in school. After picking up the children, they went back to the residence to pick up the silver SUV and then drove it to the Red Roof Inn. Then, Hornsby got into the other SUV and was dropped off at the low water crossing underneath S. Bryant at Ben Ficklin Road. This woman said she did not know anything about the shooting and did not know who George was.

On November 11, 2022, the victim was interviewed by investigators at the Shannon ICU. The victim spoke Spanish and had to have a translator. The victim said he lives with his girlfriend, Hornsby, George, and Hornsby’s three children. The victim did not know George’s name but referred to him as “El Negro”.

The victim said George shot him twice with a gray and black handgun in his bedroom. The handgun jammed and Hornsby allegedly took the gun and attempted to re-load it and handed it back to George.

The victim was able to escape the residence but was shot in the face outside. Then, George and Hornsby allegedly attempted to run over the victim with a vehicle. The victim was able to escape being run over and ran to a nearby residence.

George and Hornsby were booked into the Tom Green County Detention Facility on December 29, 2022, after being captured in Shreveport, Louisiana. George has a bond of $500,000 while Hornsby has a $250,000 bond. Both are not allowed to contact the victim.
