Texas resident Jeffrey Nicholas, 28, has been arrested following the death of two Concho County Sheriff’s deputies who were killed in a shootout late Monday night in the town of Eden. One civilian is also reported to have been shot in the stomach and was transported to a nearby hospital. According to local outlet KTXS, the gunfight began after officers attempted to stop Nicholas while he was driving a car and commanded him to get out with his hands up. Witnesses say Nicholas fled the scene and barricaded himself inside his home. An approximately 30-minute standoff ensued, in which Eden Mayor Pete Torres, who lives nearby, convinced the alleged shooter to surrender. A bond for Nicholas has been set at $4 million.
