One of three suspects in a Jan. 13 shooting gets a slightly lower bond.

West Point Municipal Judge Bennie Jones reduced the bond for 30-year-old Tymotheans Henry from $250,000 to $200,000 following a brief hearing Tuesday.

Henry remained in jail as of Tuesday evening.

Henry was the second person charged. Accompanied by his father, Henry turned himself in Jan. 17 after learning he was a suspect.

He, along with 27-year-old Jenerrio Demarco Jones, of Columbus, are charged with aggravated assault in the Jan. 13 early-morning shooting of Travis Strong inside a home on Fifth Street North next to the old Northside School. A third person, 21-year-old Joshua Maurice Ewing, is charged with accessory after the fact.

His bond also is set at $200,000.

Jones' bond is set at $250,000.

The shooting happened at about 2 a.m. Investigators think the confrontation may have started outside and then continued inside the house.

Strong's 80-year-old great-grandmother was held at gunpoint during the assault and she called 911 after the suspects fled.
A fourth suspect, also thought to have Lowndes County ties, still is being sought.
