Additional warrants have been issued and arrests made in conjunction with the investigation into the Jan. 2 shooting at a residence in Kickapoo Marina Subdivision that left one dead and three wounded.

The Polk County Sheriff’s Office received calls around 11:25 p.m. Jan. 2 in reference to a shooting at the residence. Detectives arrived at the location and identified the homeowners as William Kenneth Schultea, 42, and Britney Alice Campbell, 42, both of Livingston. Detectives also located a deceased male, identified as James Michael McClanhan, 50 of Livingston. A search warrant was obtained and a large quantity of narcotics were also found in the home.    

Detectives were able to determine that three males who were involved also suffered gunshot wounds. They were identified as Schultea, Derrek Monroe Hughes, 33 of Shelbyville, and David Eugene Stimmell, 50 of Trinity.  Hughes and Stimmell were located later that night and transferred to CHI St. Luke’s Hospital, although both were later transferred to out of county hospitals for further treatment. Schultea was located later that day at a residence in San Jacinto County with a single gunshot wound.  He was then also transported to an out of county hospital.

Sheriff’s Office detectives, along with assistance from the Texas Rangers Office, located several witnesses who identified many of the parties involved in this incident.

Stimmell was arrested and charged with murder, tampering with evidence and violation of a protective order. He is in the Polk County Jail on bonds totaling over $1 million. Steven Ray Davis was arrested and charged with unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon and remains in the Polk County Jail on bonds totaling over $90,000. Campbell was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance but is out on a $30,000 bond.

Warrants have been issued for Schultea for unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon and possession of a controlled substance and for Hughes for two pardon and parole warrants, unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon and failure to identify fugitive.

“I would like to thank the Polk County District Attorney’s Office, Texas Rangers Office, the Texas Department of Public Safety and Texas Games Wardens Dive Teams, Onalaska Police Department and the offices of Justice of the Peace Precinct 1 Terri Mayer and Justice of the Peace Precinct 4 Jamie Richardson for assisting in the investigation,” Sheriff Byron Lyons said.
