Lone Star College shooting suspects due in court Monday

Both suspects in the shooting at a Lone Star College campus will face a judge Monday.

Carlton Berry and Trey Foster are each charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Shots were fired after investigators say the suspects got into an argument with Jody Neal last Tuesday.

Berry, Neal and a maintenance worker were injured.

KTRK legal analyst Joel Androphy says it will be challenging for the suspects to come up with a defense.

"You cannot get into an argument with somebody [and] claim self-defense to shooting a third person," Androphy said. "You may be able to claim self-defense with the person that you have the altercation with if in fact a weapon was needed."

Harris County Sheriff's Office deputies say they're still not sure who actually pulled the trigger.

They found a gun on Foster when they arrested him and are investigating whether it was the one used in the shooting.
