Lufkin dad: Son confronted by gang member with gun at LHS

Posted: Updated:
LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

Lufkin police are investigating a father's allegation that his son was confronted by a rival gang member Thursday afternoon on the Lufkin High School campus.

According to the police report, the father said he and his son were in the car line to pick up his daughter from summer school. His son, who is part of the Savages gang, looked over at a parallel line of cars and saw a 17-year-old member of the East Side gang, who was with is friend to pick up her sister.

The father alleged the East Sider waved a gun from his car. That is when both rivals got out of their vehicles and approached each other.

Cpl. Randall Brooks said they began arguing with each other and the East Sider wrapped his gun in his shirt.

After the two were separated, the East Sider left the area, but deputies with the sheriff's office were able to locate him.

Brooks said the East Sider claimed he was using a toy gun and police were not able to recover a weapon.

Brooks said nobody, not even the Savage, except the father, would cooperate with police.

Charges are pending as the investigation continues.
