Jeffrey Nicholas, arrested for Capital Murder of a Peace Officer

SAN ANGELO, Texas — Jeffery Nicholas has been charged with two counts of Capital Murder of a Police Officer and had a bond of two million dollars set for each count ($4 million total) for Monday evening’s shooting that left two Concho County deputies dead and a City of Eden employee injured.

According to the affidavit, deputies responded to a investigation regarding a person being bitten by a dog. Witnesses stated Nicholas refused cooperation and threatened to shoot deputies before the incident. A struggle between officers and Nicholas ensued. Nicholas produced a semi-automatic pistol and opened fire — striking, and killing both deputies and injuring the City of Eden employee.

During the interview afterwards, Nicholas confessed to the shooting and offered apologies for the shooting and killing of the deputies and injuring the city employee.
