Lufkin Shooting Update

by Tashun Chism

Twenty-one-year-old Mykesha Spencer remains in critical condition at a Houston hospital.

She was shot in the mouth in front of a house on Garvan St. in Lufkin.

Investigators believe her ex-boyfriend, 23-year-old Fred Hurts, Jr. was the person who shot her.

Hurts left the scene and later killed himself in a house in Cedar Grove, apparently with the same gun.

Spencer and hurts have a one-year-old son but had broken off their relationship several months ago.

Hurts' family members still can't believe what happened.

"That's the last thing we thought would have happened to him, for him to something like this. That wasn't him. He never had a problem. If he had a problem, it didn't last that long because we always solved it. With this problem we didn't get to talk to him soon enough. If we could have, our brother would have been right here and we wouldn't have to do all of this," Hurts' brother Zavian Daniels told us.

Hurt's family also tells us they are keeping Mykesha and her family in their prayers.
