HARRIS COUNTY, Texas – Two men are wanted in connection with a shooting incident on Aug. 31, officials said.

Harris County authorities said Bobby Manuel Anderson, 32, and Javaun Lamar Skinner, 28, have been charged with aggravated assault against a public servant after they fired shots at a Harris County Precinct 1 deputy constable at 2900 West Sam Houston Parkway South about 12:05 a.m. that Friday.

The deputy was working an extra job at a motel and was escorting two trespassing suspects off the property when one of the suspects fired at the deputy, authorities said.

The deputy was not hit, but both men left the scene on foot, officials said.
