Suspects Shoots at Officers During Chase

by Jessica Cervantez

The suspect in another East Texas chase remains in jail after shooting at officers. It all happened Sunday afternoon. That is when DPS troopers tried to stop 26-year-old Matthew Hibbard for a traffic violation on County Road 434 in Nacogdoches County. That is when the pursuit began.

A DPS team continued to follow Hibbard. At one point, Hibbard stopped his truck pointed a rifle and shot at one of the troopers. The trooper ran off the road and hit a fence, but was not injured. That is when other officers got involved. Spikes were successfully thrown, and the chase ended at Martin Luther King and Shawnee Street in Nacogdoches.

Hibbard is charged with fleeing and three counts of attempted capital murder.
