Baytown man charged in Westlake shooting

By BOBBY HORN JR.
LIBERTY COUNTY—A Baytown man has been charged in the June 3 shooting in the Westake area of South Liberty County.
Robert Dwayne Lowery, 32, has been charged with the aggravated assault of Jerald Reeves, 51.
Lowery, who is in a Baytown jail on unrelated charges, is expected to be returned to Liberty this week.
According to the Liberty County Sheriff’s Office, the shooting took place at Reeves home on Private Road 4443, off County Road 443 at around 9:15 p.m.
Reeves told investigators that he and his wife were having dinner when a vehicle pulled up in front of his house and began to honk its horn.
When Reeves went outside to investigate he was shot twice, one in the arm and the other in the chest.
Reeves was transported by Life Flight Air Ambulance to Memorial Hermann Hospital in critical condition.
Investigators say they found .22 caliber shell casings as well as live rounds on the ground outside the house.
They added that they believe that earlier in the day Reeves and Lowery had gotten into an argument that sparked the attack.
