Drew Dylan Ponkonin, 22 of Livingston, was arrested and charged with murder in conjunction with a disturbance that occurred at the Pine Hill Apartments at 12:29 a.m. Saturday.

The Livingston Police Department received a 911 call of a disturbance with shots fired and at least one subject possibly injured in the parking lot of the apartment complex located at 1025 West Church Street in Livingston.

Livingston police officers, Polk County sheriff’s deputies and EMTs responded to the scene and upon arrival, found two deceased black males in a vehicle in the parking lot and detained a white male also found at the scene, according to Livingston Police Chief Matt Parrish.

Additional units from the police department were called to assist in the investigation along with the Texas Rangers. Polk County Precinct 4 Justice of the Peace Jamie Richardson responded and performed the inquest, ordering autopsies be performed by the Harris County Medical Examiner.

“This investigation is ongoing and officers are continuing to interview witnesses and process evidence. We ask that anyone with information on this incident please contact the Livingston Police Department,” Parrish said.

    Drew was defending himself. He shouldn’t be charged with murder. The truth always comes to light.

    Drew called the police and stayed on the phone for 3 minutes. He waited for them to arrive on the scene.  He was defending himself.  #freedrew

    This story isn’t accurate. It’s not telling the facts of what happened and Drew was defending himself.
