Shaun Lucas has been charged with murder in connection with the fatal shooting of Jonathan Price in Oct. 2022.

  • The trial of the former Wolfe City police officer accused of killing a local man is scheduled to begin this month in Greenville. Shaun Lucas of Lone Oak has been charged with murder in connection with the fatal shooting of Jonathan Price, which happened in October 2020. Lucas has pled not guilty. The Greenville Herald Banner reports Lucas was transferred from the Collin County jail to the Hunt County jail on Friday. He remains held there on $1 million bond.
  • A pretrial hearing is scheduled for today in the 354th District Court. Jury selection in the case has been scheduled for Sept. 12. The Herald Banner reports that both the prosecution and defense attorneys have been issuing subpoenas for witnesses and evidence. Price died after being shot by Lucas during an incident that occurred in the parking lot of a gas station convenience store on the night of Oct. 3, 2020. A Texas Department of Public Safety investigation of the incident concluded that the shooting was “not justifiable force.” Lucas was fired after the incident and in November of that year, a Hunt County grand jury filed a murder indictment against Lucas.
