Hunt County Jail
Not guilty of murder. That’s what a Hunt County jury has decided in the case of a former Wolfe City Police Officer. The state accused Shaun Lucas of using unnecessary lethal force to kill Jonathan Price in 2020. Lucas told the jury he attempted to arrest Price for public intoxication, but Price resisted and tried to grab his taser. Lucas’ attorney Toby Shook says his client was afraid for his life and fired his gun. Prices’ family says Jonathan was trying to break up a fight himself and posed no threat. The Texas Rangers who investigated the shooting found the lethal force was unnecessary.
