81-year-old accused of shooting ET Deputy – KLTV 7 News Tyler, Longview, Jacksonville |.


Merrill Wickware, 81, is accused of shooting the Harrison County Sergeant DJ Couch while she was serving papers at a home on FM 9, near Waskom.

Investigators say as Sgt. Couch was serving a court ordered seizure on an RV, Wickware emerged from a mobile home and fire a .22 pistol, grazing her head.

After a short stand-off, Wickware was arrested. Investigators say he gave no reason for his actions.

Making things more confusing, investigators say Wickware had no connection at all to the RV.

Webb says, “The RV was on this person’s property. We do not know why it was on the property.”
