GREENVILLE - The shootings occurred during separate raids by law enforcement with the Hunt County Sheriff’s Office and FBI.

Drug charges have been levied against four of those suspects, including 32-year-old Cory Parker, who is also charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon against a public servant after allegedly pulling a gun on officers.

Parker was shot and being treated at a hospital.

The incident occurred when sheriff’s deputies were attempting to serve a narcotics warrant along Northshore Road.  Charged with manufacture/delivery of a controlled substance is Kellie Lea Locke, while Chance Dakota Jeffcoat and Tiffany Renee Lewis are charged with possession of drug paraphernalia. A juvenile suspect was also facing charges.

At roughly the same time, FBI agents were pursuing two brothers for an alleged armed bank robbery in Forney where they escaped with roughly $27,000. Johnny Butler was said to be slightly wounded during a brief exchange of gunfire with agents along Cody Lane in Quinlan. His brother, James, was also arrested.  The two reportedly have admitted to committing five armed hold-ups.
