NACOGDOCHES COUNTY, Texas (KETK) – A Nacogdoches man was arrested on Tuesday and is facing felony charges after a shooting and standoff incident, according to the sheriff’s office.

Steven Perry, 40

Steven Perry, 40, was arrested on two charges of deadly conduct after officials said “he fired multiple rounds in a residential area, some of which struck neighboring vehicles and property.”

Nacogdoches County deputies were dispatched to the scene in the 100 block of CR 735 around 10:50 a.m. to investigate shots fired, and officials said two rounds hit a car near a person.

“As deputies arrived on scene and heard more gunfire, it was determined that an individual was barricaded inside a home,” officials said.

A perimeter was established around the residence by members of the sheriff’s office, Precinct 1 and Precinct 4 Constable’s Offices, State Troopers, Nacogdoches Police and SWAT Team members on the scene.

A sheriff’s office investigator attempted to get him to exit the home, and at around 12:42 p.m. officials said Perry exited the home and was taken into custody without incident.

He is currently in custody at the Nacogdoches County Jail.
