Police suspect the father of shooting and killing his ex-wife and then taking his 4-year-old son from his mother’s house in Tyler earlier today.

According to reports from our sister station KNUE in Tyler and KLTV, Police spokesman Don Martin says Calvert could possibly still be armed and will likely be driving a gray 2000 Buick LeSabre with license plate DP4G858.


Lucas was last seen wearing gray sweatpants and a blue sweatshirt.

The shooting occurred near Southern Oaks Baptist Church, near South Bain Place and Amherst near Pollard Park. The TV station also reports the mother and her son were staying at a house owned by the church, which was helping her stay at the home while she was in school and preparing to move out of town. She also worked at the church nursery.
Police ask that anyone who sees Calvert or his vehicle call 911 immediately.
