JACKSONVILLE, TX (KLTV) - Jacksonville police broke up a fight involving seven women Sunday evening.
According to Jacksonville Police, a group of women in two different vehicles pulled into the Nu Time Truck Stop around 4:00 pm, Sunday and began fighting.
Two of the women, Soni Brooks and Christina Thornton, had been exchanging heated text messages earlier about the father of Christina's children.
The owner of the convenience store called police, but before officers got there four of the women had already left.

The incident remains under investigation.
