GRANBURY (CBSDFW.COM) - High powered assault rifles, bullet proof vests, computers and dozens of guns have been removed from the home of a man who was killed during a shootout with Granbury Police.
Authorities searched the Joshua home of Ricky McCommas Friday afternoon.
Neighbors say they had a good relationship with the 49-year-old man who had a wife and young son.
“It’s shocking your neighbor would have a bunch of guns, that’s shocking from knowing him I never would have dreamed that he had a lot of guns,” says Tim Upchurch who lives near by McCommas.
McCommas was killed in a town square gun battle with Granbury Police Friday morning after he shot and wounded Officer Chad Davis.
“The suspect pulled into that parking lot right behind City Hall, at which time he got out of the van with an assault weapon and started firing on the officers,” according to Granbury Police Chief, Mitch Galvan.
“He had on a black tactical vest and he had assault rifle with a big drum magazine on it and a creepy look on his face,” says Joe Vandaveer who witnessed the incident.
Earlier and north of town, authorities say McCommas shot and critically wounded Lance McLean, a Hood County Sheriff’s deputy.
Authorities say McCommas missed a court appearance Friday morning on charges he sexually assaulted a teen and went to her home north of Granbury to confront her.
He was cited for criminal trespassing by Deputy McLean who was called to the scene.
Whether that caused his violent outburst is still unclear.
But the arsenal found inside his home raises more questions about his motives and plans.
Some neighbors say McCommas was known to frequent gun shows and worked in private security but they didn’t know where.
Officer Davis is expected to recover from his injuries.
Deputy McLean, a five year veteran with a wife and young baby girl, is reportedly in critical condition and on life support with a gunshot wound to the back of the head.
