Three Horseshoe Bay residents were charged in relation to the accidental shooting of a three-year-old last month, including the parents of the child.

Toby Dewayne Patterson, 48, was charged with injury to a child, a second degree felony, and tampering with evidence, a third degree felony. His wife Dee Ann Davenport Patterson, 38, was charged with tampering with evidence and unlawful possession of a fire arm, a third degree felony. A third individual, Brian Christopher Evans, was charged with tampering with evidence.

Horseshoe Bay Police arrested Evans on Saturday morning after patrol officers spotted him inside a convenience store. He was then transported to Llano County Jail. Toby and Dee Ann Patterson turned themselves in to the Horseshoe Bay Police on Saturday night and were transported to Burnet County Jail.

  1. "At the hospital, the parents told Burnet County District Attorney Investigator Jack Schumacher they tossed the weapon in the incident by the side of the road because Davenport was a convicted felon and wasn’t supposed to be around firearms. Patterson even went to the length of drawing investigators a map that retraced his steps to where he disposed of the gun on Rocky Ridge Road, according to the affidavit."
