Bond Set For Suspects Involved In Shoot Out With Police

by Ramonica R. Jones

Huntington police chief, David West, said, "Officer [Jeff] Richardson was attempting to stop the vehicles on Highway 69 down toward Lufkin. [The] vehicle failed to stop."

It happened around midnight Sunday on FM 326 in Huntington - three officers against three people in a vehicle. Both groups exchanged gunfire during a short chase to Highway 103.

"Once they turned on 326, they checked a pursuit at that time. He pursued them approximately about a mile, and they pulled out an assault rifle and shot approximately six times at Officer Richardson's vehicle."

One of those bullets hit Officer Jeff Richardson's windshield. He was temporarily blinded by shattered glass and ended up crashing his patrol car into a fence.

"They're doing fine," said Chief West. "Officer Richardson sustained minor injuries to his eye from the glass. He's doing great."

Two of the suspects are from the area and have caused trouble before. The alleged shooter, 21-year-old Steven Wilson of Lufkin, was on probation for failing to register as a sex offender.

Twenty-two year-old Tanner Hole of Huntington reportedly made bomb threats against Huntington High School while he was a student there. His girlfriend, 18-year-old Sabrina Canda, also of Huntington, was a teenage runaway.

Police arrested them without a struggle or physical confrontation.

The suspected getaway driver in the shooting was shot twice, but treated at a hospital, then released.

All three suspects are charged with attempted capital murder. Bond for each is $500,000.
