BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) - The man accused of shooting another man at a park and then firing a gun at a deputy constable was sentenced on Thursday in a Brazos County district court.

Joshua Cyrus Wynn, 25, of Universal City, pleaded guilty to multiple charges for the October 2020 incident at Hensel Park.

Wynn shot the victim twice at the park before he fired several shots at a Brazos County Deputy Constable who was responding to the area. The shooting victim survived his injuries, and the deputy constable wasn’t injured.
