An ex-basketball player from a Texas high school who was detained in 2022 for accidentally shooting the team trainer has since been detained twice more in connection with a series of armed robberies.
A gun that Kyron Henderson, a 6’6″ senior on the Kimball High School (Dallas) boy’s basketball team, had in his luggage went off, striking the team’s female student trainer in the ankle, as they were traveling to San Antonio for the UIL Boys Basketball state championship game in March 2022.
According to Dallas News, Henderson, who was 18 at the time, was detained the following morning on two felony gun charges, one of which allegedly involved having a firearm on school grounds.
Two days after his arrest, the budding talent, who was previously convicted to play football at West Texas A&M, was let out of jail, and the case against him was later dropped in August 2022.
Following the shooting, Henderson was fired from the team. After his legal case was dropped, he went on a crime rampage, robbing numerous individuals and eventually being arrested twice more in the span of 18 days.
Teen’s alleged crime spree continues after release on bond
Two felonies, second-degree robbery and first-degree aggravated robbery, originate from an armed robbery at a Starbucks on November 28, 2022, led to Henderson’s arrest and booking in April.
In order to lure his final victims to a predetermined place where he would pull a gun and rob them, Henderson had pretended on social media to be someone trying to buy laptops.
He made plans to conduct a selling transaction at Starbucks on Oaklawn after exchanging conversations with a Facebook user using the name “Lamar Brown.” A story from WFAA cited an arrest affidavit.
According to court records, Henderson, 19, was arrested ten days after being released on a $50,000 bond and placed on Pretrial/Electronic Monitoring because he didn’t follow the terms of the bond and was discovered in multiple unapproved locations over the course of three days beginning just hours after his release.
According to the station, Dallas Police attempted to apprehend Henderson for a fourth time last week on four additional aggravated robbery counts. It is unknown whether he has been arrested.
