Longview man gets six years for firing gun in direction of son, two others

Posted: Updated:

LONGVIEW/GREGG COUNTY (KYTX) - A Longview man was sentenced to six years in prison for a June 2012 shooting that left a bullet hole in the vehicle in which his four-year-old son was riding.

Treboria Lymyous-Dewayne Wallace, 24, pled guilty Thursday to one count of aggravated assault/family violence with a deadly weapon, in exchange for the state dropping two other counts of aggravated assault.

The case stems from a 2012 charge that he shot at family members. His attorney, David Ingram, asked 124th District Judge Alfonso Charles for probation for Wallace; Gregg County Assistant District Attorney Chris Parker requested a 12-year prison sentence.

Prosecutors say Wallace brought a gun to a Taco Bell restaurant on High Street near downtown Longview on June 30, 2012, to pick up his son from his ex-girlfriend. Wallace fired it at least once during an altercation, prosecutors said.

Wallace has pending charges of assault and contempt of court stemming from a child support issue, according to online records.
