Hopkins County Sheriff Lewis Tatum and another deputy were fired upon Tuesday afternoon when they attempted to serve a warrant on Blaine Sartin on Hwy 11 East in Pickton. Officers returned fire and then called SWAT. Sartin barricaded himself inside the residence. When SWAT entered the home, Sartin was found deceased, and the Texas Ranger will investigate the incident. Authorities told us they believe one of the bullets fired by a deputy struck Sartin.
