Lufkin PD asks for help locating reader by shooting suspect
The Lufkin Police Department is asking the public for help in locating Edward “Tony” Neveu Sr., 45, of Lufkin, in connection with the shooting of a man on Saturday morning.
Jerry Brown, 28, of Lufkin, said he was walking down East Menefee Street around 11 a.m. when Neveu drove past him in a black Nissan Altima and fired a shot from the vehicle window. The bullet hit Brown in the lower back and buttocks area. He was taken by ambulance to a local hospital. His injury would not be life threatening.
Nephew fled the scene before the police arrived.
Brown told officers there was an ongoing issue between him and Neveu over the money.
Nephew is described as a black man with very short or bald hair, 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighing around 165 pounds. He is known to have facial hair – sometimes a thick beard and sometimes a goatee.
He has already been arrested 12 times in Angelina County for robbery, aggravated sexual assault, burglary of a home to commit another felony, possession of a controlled substance, assault / domestic violence and illegal possession of a gun by a criminal.
If you see Nephew or know where he is, please do not approach him as he is considered a dangerous criminal. Instead of trying to apprehend Neveu, you are asked to call the Lufkin Police Department at 936-633-0356 or Crime Stoppers at 936-639-TIPS. You can also contact Crime Stoppers online here. Crime Stoppers offers cash rewards for anonymous tips leading to crime solving information.
The incident is still under investigation.
