EDEN, Texas (AP) — Authorities say a man shot two West Texas sheriff’s deputies dead and critically wounded a city employee while answering a dog complaint.
Jeffrey Nicholas, 28, has been charged with capital murder and jailed with a $4 million bond.
The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) says the Monday night attack happened at a residence in Eden, a town of about 1,300 people roughly 210 miles southwest of Dallas.
The agency said that while the two Concho County sheriff’s deputies and a city employee were contacting the residents, “an altercation occurred and quickly escalated to gunfire.”
