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, 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.
