Lufkin PD Asking for Help in Locating Drive By Shooting Suspect
The Lufkin Police Department is asking for the public’s help in locating Edward “Tony” Neveu Sr., 45, of Lufkin, in connection to the Saturday morning shooting of a man.
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 struck Brown in the lower back/buttock area. He was taken by ambulance to a local hospital. His injury is not believed to be life-threatening.
Neveu fled the scene before officers arrived.
Brown told officers there was an ongoing issue between him and Neveu over money.
Neveu is described as a black male 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 heavy beard and sometimes a goatee.
He has 12 prior Angelina County arrests on charges including aggravated robbery, aggravated sexual assault, burglary of a habitation to commit another felony, possession of a controlled substance, assault/family violence, and unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon.
If you see Neveu or know of his possible whereabouts, please do not approach him as he is considered a dangerous felon.
