2nd person charged in shooting of Round Rock father

ROUND ROCK - An Austin woman has been arrested after she allegedly confessed to her role in a shooting in Round Rock involving a man and his teenage son.

Madeline Anderson, 20, told police that she, another man, and Trevor Thompson, 19, all intended to rob Trevor's father, Trent Thompson. Trevor Thompson was previously arrested for his role in the case.

According to the arrest affidavit, a witness said they saw a white male, later identified as Trevor Thompson, getting out of a black Mustang. Trevor along with two other people, went into the house on the 5800 block of Sardinia Drive that belonged to Trent Thompson.

According to the witness, Trevor's father arrived home a few minutes later. Shortly after Trent entered the house, neighbors heard a gunshot then saw Trevor chase Trent into the yard. Trent was later seen banging on the door of a neighbor's house and saying, "Help me I have been shot by son."

Trevor then shot Trent in the back, police said. The male and female were then seen leaving in the Mustang while Trevor ran down the street. Trent was able to read the license plate of the Mustang as it drove past him and told police the plate number, according to the arrest affidavit.

Investigators located the Mustang and identified Anderson as the driver. She told police that she drove Trevor to his house and waited in the car while he went inside. She said she then heard a gunshot and drove away. Trevor allegedly called her later and asked her to pick him up, which she did, and went back to her apartment.

According to the affidavit, Anderson told police that the gun Trevor used to shoot his father belonged to her. She said that she had loaned the gun to Trevor so that he could use it to rob his father. When Trevor returned the gun to her, Anderson said that she hid the weapon in her closet. 

Police charged Anderson with criminal conspiracy of aggravated robbery and aggravated assault. She was arrested and is being held on a $20,000 bond.
