A subject wanted in connection with the shooting of an 11-year-old girl Sunday has turned himself in to the Polk County Sheriff’s Office but has not been charged.

“This investigation is ongoing and the local Texas Ranger is assisting,” Polk County Sheriff Byron Lyons said.

The Polk County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call from the 2500 block of FM 1988 around 2 a.m. Sunday that someone had shot into the residence. Deputies arrived at the scene and found that an 11-year-old female who was asleep in bed had been shot.

The sheriff’s office initially sought assistance in locating a person of interest named Avery Norman who was possibly driving either a black Dodge or a black older-model four-door Acura. Norman turned himself in but no charges had been filed as of press time.

Lyons said the child is expected to make a complete recovery.
