The case involving a man accused of shooting his father multiple times with an AR-15 will be heard next week by an Erath County grand jury.


District attorney Alan Nash said the grand jury will hear evidence in the case on Wednesday against 22-year-old Garrett Reeves who is accused of shooting his father Kent Reeves on April 9.

Garrett Reeves has been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and is being held on a $500,000 bond at the Hood County Jail.


Nash said the charge will likely be upgraded to a first degree felony because the victim is a family member.

Judson Woodley, a criminal defense attorney in Comanche, has been appointed to represent Garrett Reeves.


Meanwhile, Kent Reeves, who serves as the Erath County auditor, appears to be making a miraculous recovery.


Judge Alfonso Campos told Beneath the Surface News that he “is making progress,” but remains hospitalized while undergoing rehabilitation.
