HOUSTON, Texas (KPRC) - A week ago, Carlton Berry was arrested in connection with the shooting on the campus of Lone Star College's North Harris campus. Now a free man after charges against him were dismissed, Berry said Tuesday he wants more than his name cleared by Harris County Sheriff Adrian Garcia.


"I would like an apology," Berry said while still leaning on crutches


Berry, 22, was one of three people injured in the shooting that occurred Jan. 22. 


The request for an apology came one day after Garcia offered no remorse for initially naming Berry as the shooter.


"I'm not going to apologize," Garcia said during a news conference Monday.  "I owe him no apologies. This is an investigation that is still in progress."


Berry added that it hurt him to hear his name being dragged through the mud by countless media outlets throughout the week.


"I'm a good person," Berry said.  "I don't run with gangs. I'm not a gang member. I attend school to further my education so I can have a better future."
