Citizens in the area of W. 7th and Main St. in Texarkana were surrounded with unusual circumstances late yesterday afternoon:  the sound of gun shots.  Shortly after the shots rang out, officers were talking with possible victims outside the Bi-State Justice Center.  At the end of the day, one person was charged with two felony offenses.

Investigators determined that two vehicles were involved.  One was driven by 35-year-old Sonya Hopkins, of Texarkana, TX.  Hopkins had two passengers, including his girlfriend, in the car with him.  The second vehicle was driven by Joseph Hawkins.  The ex-pulled out a handgun, pointed it at Hawkins, and fired four shots at him...but she didn't hit him.  Hopkins had dropped his two passengers off at the Bi-State Justice Center and left the scene, only to return a short time later.  No weapon was recovered; however, shell casings were found inside Hopkins’ vehicle.  He was arrested for deadly conduct and being a felon in possession of a firearm. Hopkins was booked into the Bi-State Justice Center, where he's awaiting bond.
