TYLER, TX (KLTV) - Chris Summerville, the man accused of shooting Smith County Sheriff's Deputy Josh Caulkins was arraigned in a Tyler courtroom on Friday.

Summerville plans to enter a not guilty plea on all six counts of aggravated assault on a peace officer.

Late in the night on March 23, Federal Marshals and Smith County authorities approached the Arbors apartments in south Tyler to serve a federal warrant.

Upon entering the apartment where the suspect was believed to be, authorities say Summerville opened fire with a 22 pistol, hitting Deputy Caulkins, in the chest.

Caulkins was wearing a bullet-proof vest.

Two others were also arrested. The renter of the apartment, Kara Adams-Hanley and Jeffrey Andrysiak were each charged with engaging in organized criminal activity and manufacture delivery of a controlled substance.

Adams was also arraigned Friday morning, and plans to plead not guilty.
