Kidnapping suspect indicted in Henderson Co.; 39 others charged

HENDERSON COUNTY, TX (KLTV) -

An aggravated kidnapping suspect is among a group of people indicted in Henderson County.

Rodolfo Leon Sanchez, 29, of Chandler, was indicted April 6 on a charge of aggravated kidnapping. The case was investigated by Athens Police Department. KLTV has reached out to the department for more information on the case.

In March, Sanchez was indicted on a separate charge of attempted capital murder. 

He is suspected of shooting at a Chandler Police Department officer in December 2015. According to Chandler police, the incident started after Sanchez had an argument with his sister about bringing a dog in the house. When a sergeant arrived, Sanchez was hiding behind a Christmas tree. He fired and the shot hit the floor. The sergeant then returned fire and attempted to return to their vehicle. Sanchez followed the sergeant while firing three rounds, striking the vehicle each time.

Attempted murder-suicide

The grand jury also returned an indictment for a man suspected in a murder-suicide attempt at a Kaufman Walmart.

Donald Ray Coleman, 54, was indicted April 6 for aggravated assault and unlawful restraint stemming from a January incident.

Coleman is also facing a murder charge in a fatal shooting that occurred on March 22 at a Kaufman Walmart store.

According to the Associated Press, Coleman, fired multiple shots at Walmart employee John Morgan, 59, in the Walmart garden center. Coleman then shot himself in the head, attempting suicide. Captain Ed Black, with Kaufman Police Department, said Coleman has been charged with murder. Black said he remains in the hospital and his condition is listed as serious.
