The charges have been upgraded to aggravated assault with a deadly weapon for the woman accused of shooting and seriously injuring a man during a Facebook Live video.

Cassandra Damper was previously charged with tampering with evidence after police said she tried to wipe off her hands before testing for gun powder residue.

Damper’s attorney Monique Sparks confirmed the upgraded charges Wednesday morning.

The shooting happened on Easter Sunday around 2 a.m. at the Valero gas station on Almeda and Southmore in southwest Houston.

Police say the victim, Devyn Holmes, was inside of a parked car with Damper and another man who were playing with guns on Facebook Live.
