Garland man charged in New Year's Day shooting

Commerce – A Garland man remains in custody at the Hunt County Jail charged with two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in connection to recent shooting in Commerce.

Carlos Anthony Mahr, 24, is alleged to have shot Cedric Lamone Lewis, 20, and Raymond Weatherall, 17, both of Commerce, early New Year's Day. There's been no word on why the shots were fired.

The incident occurred in the 2200 block of Live Oak. Lewis was found at Hunt Regional Healthcare hospital in Commerce, where he had been transported by private vehicle with a wound to his leg. He was treated and released later that morning.

Weatherall was found with a gunshot wound to his side at the intersection of Culver and Bryant Streets. He was transported to Hunt Regional Healthcare hospital in Greenville where he underwent surgery and was listed in serious condition. Weatherall's current condition is not known, but is said to have improved.

Mahr was taken into custody on Thursday at a residence in the 1000 block of Sycamore St. His arraignment hearing was held Friday, where bond was set at $30,000 on each charge.
