Greenville High School shooting: Suspect arrested after shooting at 'now-former' football coach

Police in Hunt County arrested a Houston woman accused of trying to shoot a school employee at a high school athletics center.

The shooting took place in Greenville at the Greenville High School Athletics Center.

Wednesday, two Greenville ISD police vehicles sat parked outside the high school’s athletic facility. 

That was where the district says a now-former employee, a football assistant coach, was shot at by his ex-wife Tuesday around 1:30 p.m.

No students or staff were injured, and all summer workouts finished an hour prior. 

Wednesday, Greenville ISD’s superintendent posted a statement online saying that the assistant coach who was shot at "is now a former employee of the school district." 

In the statement, Superintendent Dr. Joe Lopez said, "The district shall not tolerate any issues between adults that may cause a safety concern for other employees or students."

Late Wednesday, Greenville ISD confirmed the suspect shooter is 44-year-old Tekeysha Letoya McCloud, of Houston.

McCloud’s charges include aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and unlawful carry of a weapon in prohibited places. 

Greenville ISD says the coach was the intended target when McCloud fired one round. It’s unclear what led up to that.

McCloud was eventually taken into custody late Tuesday evening by district police in the Dallas area. She was then transferred to the Hunt County jail. 

McCloud remains in jail with a $105,000 bond.
