The Texas Rangers say Jonathan Price was walking away from Wolfe City Police Officer Shaun Lucas when Lucas opened fire Saturday night, killing Price.
Family and friends of Price, who was 31, said Monday that the one-time college football player was intervening in a domestic disturbance when he was shot.
The 22-year-old police officer was booked Monday into the Hunt County Jail. Bail was set at $1 million. It wasn’t immediately known if Lucas had a lawyer who could comment on his behalf.
