Fatal Shooting Involving A Truancy Officer

One man is dead after a shooting in Emory this afternoon. We're told, 48 year old Gary Prather was shot and killed at a home there just off Industrial Park Boulevard off Highway 69.

Rains ISD superintendent, David Seago says Prather was shot around 4:30 by Rains ISD truancy officer Shanna Sanders. Seago says she's been with the Rains ISD police department for four years.

Sanders apparently went to the house where the shooting happened to serve a terroristic threat warrant on Prather. Earlier today, according to the superintendent, Prather came on campus and made the threat.

Superintendent Seago said by phone tonight, his prayers are with the family, and all those involved in the unfortunate incident.

The Texas Rangers are investigating.
