Man Accused of Park Shooting

by Ramonica R. Jones

An East Texas man is in jail after firing shots near a Lufkin park.  

Three witnesses said Thomas Murphy pulled up to Winston Park and stared at them. He then took off his shirt and grabbed a sawed off shotgun from the trunk of his car. Murphy then pointed the gun at a nearby house and fired a shot.

Authorities arrested Murphy at the police station and charged him with aggravated assault.  They said he had an ongoing feud with the witnesses.
