Texas Rangers Investigating After Angry Man Kills 2 Sheriff’s Deputies in His Yard

The Associated PressMay 12, 2021 at 4:04pm   

A West Texas man accused of fatally shooting two sheriff’s deputies was angry that they were in his yard trying to catch a dog and told them he would open fire if they didn’t leave, a witness said.

“They walked up towards him, rushed him, and he pulled a gun, and shots were fired,” David Hutchings told the San Angelo Standard-Times.

The shooting happened Monday evening in Eden, a city of about 1,300 people roughly 210 miles southwest of Dallas.Advertisement – story continues below

Officials said Concho County deputies Stephen Jones and Samuel Leonard were killed and city employee Ronnie Winans was injured.

DPS said Wednesday that Jeffrey Nicholas opened fire on Jones and Leonard after they “made contact” with him while responding to a dog complaint.Trending:In Just 4 Months, Biden Manages to Highlight How Competent Trump Was Over Previous 4 Years

Officials have said little else about what happened before the shooting, which is being investigated by the Texas Rangers.

Nicholas, 28, is jailed in nearby Tom Green County Detention Center on two charges of capital murder of a peace officer.Advertisement – story continues below

Hutchings, a city employee who helps with animal control, told the newspaper that the officers were helping city employees collect two dogs that had bitten someone earlier in the day.

The deputies had already caught one of the dogs and the other one ran into Nicholas’ yard. Hutchings said Nicholas did not own either animal.Do you think Nicholas should be convicted?Yes No

Nicholas told the deputies they couldn’t enter his yard to get the dog, then that they should “get off his property” and that he “has his civil rights,” Hutchings said.

He said Nicholas told the deputies that he would shoot them, and then opened fire.

Hutchings said Winans, who is his boss, was shot in the stomach when a bullet went through the door of a city pickup. DPS said Wednesday that Winans was in stable condition.Advertisement – story continues below

The funeral for Leonard is set for Monday. Jones’ funeral is set for Wednesday.
