Lufkin man gets 25-year prison sentence for shooting at man over a woman

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - A 24-year-old Lufkin man received a 25-year prison sentence Monday in connection to a February 2012 incident in which he shot at a man who came to his residence in the company of his live-in girlfriend.

Judge Barry Bryan of the 217th Judicial District Court found Michael Anthony Sheddan guilty of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, deadly conduct, and unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon during Monday's court hearing. He also sentenced to Sheddan to 25 years for the aggravated assault charge, 20 years for the deadly conduct charge, and 10 years for the unlawful firearm possession.

However, Bryan did order that the sentences should be served concurrently, or at the same time. While on the stand Monday, Sheddan said that he doesn't remember anything that happened during the incident because of the large amounts of methamphetamine that was in his system at the time.

According to police reports, the incident occurred at about 12:30 p.m. on Feb. 6, 2012. A man and two women arrived at a residence in the 800 block of N. First Street, and Sheddan, who was at the residence, apparently did not want the trio in the house and shot at the man several times.

The man Sheddan shot at went to a neighbor's house, and the neighbor called 911.

Sheddan was angry about the fact that his live-in girlfriend had come to the house with another man, according to police reports. Although officers did not locate anything damaged by the bullets, businesses, residences, and vehicles were in the paths of the bullets.
