Witness: Man angered by Texas deputies in yard killed them

Wed, May 12, 2021, 4:04 PM·2 min read

EDEN, Texas (AP) — A West Texas man accused of fatally shooting two sheriff's deputies was angry they were in his yard trying to catch a dog and he 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 (340 kilometers) southwest of Dallas. Officials say Concho County deputies Stephen Jones and Samuel Leonard were killed and city employee Ronnie Winans was injured.

DPS said Wednesday that Jeffrey Nicholas, 28, opened fire on Jones and Leonard after they “made contact” with him while responding to a dog complaint.

Officials have said little else about what happened before the shooting, which is being investigated by the Texas Rangers. Nicholas is jailed in nearby Tom Green County Detention Center on two charges of capital murder of a peace officer.
