A 38-year-old Sulphur Bluff man is accused of discharging a firearm toward firefighters and damaging a school scoreboard, according to arrest reports.
Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office deputies and investigators arrived at the man’s FM 71 residence Wednesday afternoon, Jan. 26, 2022, to serve warrants issued following investigation of the incident, alleged to have occurred around 4:20 p.m. Jan. 17.
The man was alleged to have discharged his firearms in the area near his residence, located within 300 feet of Sulphur Bluff ISD. During their investigation, deputies determined that rounds from his firearms traveled into the location where first responders were putting out a fire, striking tree branches above them. Rounds traveled through the items he was shooting at and struck school property, east of his property. The school baseball scoreboard was damaged, deputies alleged in arrest reports.
The 38-year-old resident, identified as Khary Rashann Hadnot, was taken into custody at 12:59 p.m. and transported to the county jail by Deputy Aaron Chaney. Investigators and other deputies remained on scene to execute a search warrant issued for his residence to “process the scene,” Chaney wrote in arrest reports.
Hadnot was booked into Hopkins County jail at 3:19 p.m. Jan. 26, 2022, on warrants for deadly conduct and criminal mischief resulting in $2,500-$30,000 worth of damage in connection with the Jan. 17 incident.
