New Braunfels police arrested William Henry Kloss Thursday afternoon for being involved in a pellet gun shooting at the city’s high school band practice.

The incident resulted in the minor injury of two students, according to a safety notice sent to parents by Superintendent Randy Moczygemba Wednesday. The injured students did not require medical attention.

Police said they believe the shots were fired from a pellet gun based off of evidence found in the band’s practice parking lot, where the shooting occurred. Upon further investigation, officers determined the pellets were fired from a house on Ohio Avenue.

According to the police report, a warrant was obtained by law enforcement and Kloss was arrested based on evidence found in the house.

The shooter was charged with two counts of aggravated assault at approximately 12:30 p.m. on the 800 block of Landa Street in New Braunfels, according to the report.

Kloss is being held on a $25,000 bond.
