HOUSTON (AP) -

A Houston-area sheriff is defending the arrest of a 22-year-old man who authorities initially believed was involved in a shooting that wounded him and two others at a community college.

Harris County Sheriff Adrian Garcia said Monday that two eyewitnesses at first identified Carlton Berry as the shooter. Garcia says further investigation showed that the actual shooter was 22-year-old Trey Foster.

Charges against Berry were dropped Monday morning.

Foster remains charged with two counts of aggravated assault. He also has a charge of resisting arrest in an earlier case.
    
Garcia said cases like this one "are always a work in progress."

Authorities said at least 10 shots were fired on Jan. 22 at Lone Star College, causing panic and leading to a campus lockdown.
