    Moyers superintendent exempts students from standardized test after tragedy

    MOYERS, OK -- The same standardized test that gave thousands of Oklahoma students problems earlier this week is now giving one Texoma community even more stress. this time, though, it has nothing to do with technical glitches.

SHERMAN -- No charges will be filed against the owner of a Sherman business who shot a man he says was trying to steal scrap metal from him. That man later died.

Lucien Hines, 79, will not face murder charges after the case was presented before a grand jury this week. The grand jury decided not to indict Hines.

Hines confronted two men in January after watching them through the back window of his business as he says they tried to steal several containers full of metal. The men were later identified as Shannon Sides, 41, and Jamel Fowler, 31.

"I told them alright boys, party's over. Let's go in here so we can call the law," he recalled.

But when the men wouldn't stop, Hines says he started shooting and hit Sides in the leg. Sides died a week later in the hospital.

Investigators say Fowler ran off but was later arrested in Collin County. Fowler remains behind bars.

Suspect in scrap metal robbery dies
Jan. 21, 2013

SHERMAN -- Lucian Hines, 79, took photos the day he says a string of robberies ended at his Sherman business, Stinky's Scrap Metals. He says he confronted two male suspects after watching them through the back window of his business as he says they tried to steal several containers full of metal.

"I told them alright boys, party's over. Let's go in here so we can call the law," he recalled.

But when the men wouldn't stop, Hines says he started shooting and hit 41-year-old Shannon Sides in the leg. Another suspect -- who hasn't been named -- ran off losing gloves, a boot and a ball cap in the process.

"I got this one in the leg and if I was aiming higher, I might could've got him," Hines explained. "But I wasn't trying to…I was trying to stop him and put them where they're supposed to be."

Despite being shot in the leg, Hines says Sides jumped into the driver seat of a truck Hines owned and began to try to back over his fence to escape. But when that didn't work, Hines says Sides slammed on the gas and landed on top of a pile of scrap.

Sides was flown to Plano Medical Center where underwent several surgeries but died Monday due to complications from the gunshot wound. An autopsy is planned.

"It's just dreadful it had to end this way," Hines said.

Hines is now building another fence in the place he says Sides and the other suspect entered his property.

He says he never wanted this to be the way the ordeal ended, but says he feels he did what was necessary protect his property.

The Grayson County Sheriff's Office has issued a felony warrant for the second suspect that was with Sides at the time of the alleged theft. The sheriff's office says it is still moving forward with its investigation and expects the facts of the case to be presented before a grand jury in the coming weeks. The grand jury will decide if murder charges against the business owner should be filed.

KTEN will continue to follow this case.
