Dallas ISD Superintendent Michael Hinojosa called this “a sad day for DISD” after a Kimball High School varsity basketball player was arrested in San Antonio following a shooting on the team bus Wednesday night.

The team is in San Antonio to compete in the 5A state champion tournament. Kimball played in the 5A championship game in 2021 and lost in the final seconds to Beaumont United’s buzzer-beating play.

San Antonio Police arrested 18-year-old Kyron Henderson, who is accused of shooting another 18-year-old senior, a female student athletic trainer.

She was shot in the ankle and was treated at a hospital for non life-threatening injuries.

A police report stated that the gun was inside a bag and went off when it was moved, the Dallas Morning News reports.

Henderson was charged with two felonies: aggravated assault, which carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison, and possession of a firearm on school premises, for which he could face 10 years in prison. He was in jail Thursday with bail set at $40,000.

He was dismissed from the team, but the University Scholastic League ruled that the Kimball Knights can still compete in the state tournament. They were to face Beaumont United again at 7 p.m. Thursday.

Henderson is 6-foot-7 and signed earlier this year to play football at West Texas A&M University, according to the Dallas Morning News.

Hinojosa held a media conference Thursday to address the shooting.

He said it is unknown why Henderson had a gun on the chartered bus but said it is inexcusable.

The victim is with her parents and was traveling back to Dallas, he said.
