Nacogdoches County Sheriff's deputies arrested an 18-year-old man Sunday after he allegedly barged into his sister's house wielding a deer rifle and wearing a gas mask and stated that he was “looking to kill somebody.”

Demetrus Terrell Bennett, of Garrison, is still being held in the Nacogdoches County Jail on a first-degree felony charge of burglary with the intent to commit another felony and a Class A misdemeanor charge of possession of a prohibited weapon. Collectively, his bail was set at $22,500.

According to the arrest affidavit, Nacogdoches County Sheriff's Office deputies responded to a 911 call about a disturbance involving a weapon at a residence in the 200 block of Gates Street.

When the deputies arrived on the scene, they spotted a man who was later identified as Bennett walking up the road. After Bennett was handcuffed and escorted to a patrol unit, a search revealed that he had a set of brass knuckles in the left rear pocket of his overalls.

Later, Bennett's sister told deputies that Bennett stormed into her home unannounced, and he was wielding a deer rifle and wearing a gas mask. Bennett then said he was “looking to kill somebody,” the affidavit stated.

After Bennett left the home, he allegedly fired one shot outside and fled into the woods.

According to the affidavit, Bennett's sister called his mother, and she told her that Bennett wanted to kill her husband.
