Thursday afternoon Hopkins County Deputies responded to a disturbance on FM 900. When they arrived they found that Teddy Ray Emmons, 58, had used a weapon during the commission of a family confrontation. During the confrontation between Emmons and deputies, he ran into and barricaded himself with a weapon inside a shop building. The S.W.A.T. team was called.
The SWAT team and negotiators worked with him for an hour. However, no sustained contact was initiated. Using special tactics and weapons, the SWAT team was able to get Emmons to exit the building and obey verbal commands given once he was outside, according to Sheriff’s Investigator Corley Weatherford.
Emmons was charged with Deadly Conduct Discharge Firearm ($50,000 bond) and Aggravated Assault with Deadly Weapon ($100,000 bond).
