A suspect description has been released of the man who robbed the residents of a rural Limestone County home Sunday, shot one of them and briefly took another hostage.
Sheriff Dennis Wilson said the violent nightmare began around 8:30 p.m. Sunday night, when two men who’d been fishing at Richland-Chambers Lake returned to their home on FM 39, at the same time as the girlfriend of one of the men drove up as well. The men, James Meyers and Quincy Dunn, share the home, which is located in Fallon, about eight miles south of Mexia and very near the turn-off to FM 1953.
They were approached by a man, who had covered his face with a bandana, and was armed with a handgun and a shotgun. The robber is described as a black male, about 5-feet, 7-inches tall and with a medium build.
