Lamar County Man Charged With Aggravated Assault After Brandishing Gun

Saturday morning at 10:10, Paris Police responded to a man with a gun in the 2600-block of Lamar Ave. Officers spoke with a 22-year-old male who reported that he was involved in a road rage incident with a white male who had produced a pistol and threatened him. The victim stated that the male was driving a black Ford pick-up, and while at the intersection of Collegiate Dr. and Lamar Ave., the male accused the victim of “cutting him off.” The two pulled into the convenience store in the 2600-block of Lamar, and the suspect exited his vehicle. The white male then told the victim to exit his so that they could fight. When the victim drove away, the male retrieved a pistol from his vehicle and ran toward the victim, threatening to shoot. The pick-up driver met with officers at the Lamar County Sheriff’s Office, and they arrested and charged Shawn Adam Carrouth, 45, of Bagwell, Texas, with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. He is in Lamar County Jail.
