ODESSA - After a few days of freedom, Christopher Sims is back behind bars.

This time he was arrested for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Sims has already been charged with murder in the shooting death of David Joseph Bell.

Sims posted bail on Monday after his bond was lowered from one million to $50,000.

This all stems from a shooting at the Clayton Manor Apartments in Odessa last week.

Sims is also accused of shooting Timothy Acuff.

That's why the aggravated assault charges have been tagged on.

Acuff is in good condition at Medical Center Hospital.

Bell died at the scene.
