The Angelina County Sheriff’s Office has taken a man into custody following a late-Monday morning shooting.
Sheriff Greg Sanches has confirmed the name of the man as Timothy Dean Penick, 61, of Lufkin. He had been booked in the Angelina County Jail late Monday on two charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. No bond has been set for his charges, according to county records.
Deputies took Penick into custody after an incident late Monday morning in which he is accused of shooting a man and woman on Pine Cone Lane. Sanches identified the victims as Penick's son-in-law and daughter, and said both victims in the shooting were still alive last he had heard. The man was flown by helicopter to a Nacogdoches hospital and the woman was taken to CHI St. Luke’s Health-Memorial.
Details on the incident were scarce late Monday. The sheriff’s office is continuing to investigate the shooting. More information will be reported as it is made available.
Penick's arrest history in Angelina County dates back to 1996 and includes charges of injury to a child, possession of marijuana and public intoxication.
