BROWNFIELD, TX (KCBD) - A standout student athlete in Brownfield could be headed to trial. The Brownfield News reports that a grand jury indicted Sha'Colby Hill on Friday for theft of a firearm.

Three others arrested with Hill back in July face the same charge.

They're also accused in a Seagraves shooting, but charges in that case are still being evaluated.

Before his arrest, Hill was set to start as Brownfield's quarterback, but he missed the entire season, and spent four months in an alternative education program, under the district's discipline policy.

Brownfield ISD Superintendent Tanya Monroe issued this statement on Tuesday:

Because one of our students was an adult at the time of a widely publicized, allegedly criminal, event that occurred last summer, his identity and certain information about the alleged crime was published in several media outlets.

Although specific information regarding BISD student discipline is confidential by law regardless of a student's age, I can state that based on information that the District had at the beginning of this school year regarding the alleged offenses, the student was disciplined in accordance with Texas law and District policy.

I can also state at this time that the student has successfully served out his disciplinary consequences, and in fact, did exceptionally well while satisfying his disciplinary requirements. He is, therefore, being reintegrated into the regular educational environment.

There are no legal prohibitions regarding any student's participation in extracurricular activities once all disciplinary consequences have been served.

After a thorough review of the current information we have regarding this particular situation with the student, it is my conclusion that the student does not present a danger to himself or to any other student at BISD or to anyone outside of BISD.

I am prohibited by law from discussing anything further regarding this student matter.
