Ricky Tipton Thompson

On September 4, 2006, three victims, Theresa McMahan, John Pierce, and Ricky Thompson, were sitting outside 1316 Maple Street in a Dodge Caravan talking to Matt Moore when an unknown vehicle pulled up and unknown suspects began shooting at the Caravan. The suspects shot several rounds into the vehicle and drove off. A short time later, the unknown vehicle returned and fired several more shots at the victim’s vehicle, striking McMahan, Pierce, and Thompson. The victims were transported to UT Hospital, where Thompson died as a result of his injury.
