One Killed and Several Injured in Shootings

by Larry Little

It was a violent weekend in East Texas. A man is dead and two others are in serious condition after a shooting at a Nacogdoches dance club. Investigators were back on the scene Sunday trying to get more clues to a shooting at the La Boom club in Nacogdoches county. It happened just after three Sunday morning when authorities say several shots were fired in the parking lot killing 19-year old Jermaine Barnes, and seriously injuring Edward Davis and Anthony Clark.

There are no suspects at this time. Investigators are hoping witnesses will come forward with more information.

Lufkin authorities are investigating a shooting of their own. It happened on highway 59 south. Authorities say two cars were chasing each other at high rates of speed when shots were fired from one vehicle, hitting a man in the back. He is in serious condition. Authorities eventually caught up with the shooters in Diboll. They are in custody but their names are being withheld until they are formally charged.
