A Wolfe City police officer has been arrested and charged for the murder of 31-year old Jonathan Price.

Wolfe City police officer Shaun Lucas was arrested Monday night and is being held on a $1 million bond, according to the Texas Rangers who are investigating the incident.

In a press release sent out Monday night, Officer Lucasresponded to a disturbance call at the 100 block of Santa Fe Street for a possible fight in progress at approximately 8:24 p.m. on Oct. 3.

Officer Lucas made contact with Price, who was reportedly involved in the disturbance. However, family members say he was trying to break up a domestic violence fight between a couple.

The report states that when Officer Lucas attempted to detain Price he “resisted in a non-threatening posture” and began walking away.

“Officer Lucas deployed his TASER, followed by discharging his service weapon striking Price,” said Texas Rangers in the press released.

EMS was notified and Price was transported to Hunt Regional Hospital, where he later died.

“The preliminary investigation indicates that the actions of Officer Lucas were not objectionably reasonable,” they said.

The Texas Rangers have charged Officer Lucas with the offense of Murder and booked him into the Hunt County Jail on a $1 million bond.

The investigation is being conducted by the Texas Rangers, with the cooperation of the Wolfe City Police Department and the Hunt County District Attorney’s Office.

No additional information is being released at this time.
