NORMANGEE, Texas (KBTX) - One person is dead as the Leon County Sheriff’s Office investigates a murder in Normangee.

Lloyd Anderson, 85, of Normangee was killed sometime after 3:00 p.m. on Sunday near County Road 499, according to the sheriff’s office. Investigators said four people drove off from the scene into Limestone County. Their vehicle crashed and three suspects were arrested, the sheriff’s office said in a release.

A fourth suspect got away on foot, but was later found and arrested. Right now, authorities aren’t releasing any names.

The Groesbeck Police Department said in a Facebook post that the suspects were connected to a shooting. No details were released from Leon County about the circumstances surrounding the crime.

The sheriff’s office said the Texas Rangers, the Texas Department of Public Safety and the Groesbeck Police Department assisted with the investigation.

People that knew Anderson say they can’t believe this happened.

“I kind of was in shock, kind of speechless didn’t know what to say because I would never believe anyone would do that to him but you know the way the world is now you never know,” said Gary Berkery Normagee Resident.
