Sulphur Springs police say a man wanted in connection with the armed robbery of Massey’s Convenience store on South Broadway Street two weeks ago was shot and killed in a shootout with law enforcement near the Choctaw Casino at Grant, Okla. Sulphur Springs Police Det. Bo Fox said an intense investigation has been under way since the robbery. “We developed William Honea as a suspect and issued a warrant for him on Nov. 24,” Fox said. “An intensive search for him has been ongoing since that time.” After receiving information that Honea might have been in the Grant, Okla.-area (north of Paris), Fox said he was able to develop possible locations in that area. “Yesterday [Thursday] afternoon, we made contact with Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation [OSBI] and passed along information about Honea, warrants and possible locations,” Fox said. “They began searching an area for him.” When officers located Honea and approached him near the Choctaw Casino, OSBI said he stole a pickup from a nearby barn and led officers on a chase. “I was notified late yesterday afternoon that [OSBI] had located him in the area of Choctaw Casino in Grant,” he said. “There was some type of pursuit that occurred after they located him, and at the conclusion of that pursuit, he pointed a weapon toward officers and fired the weapon. Officers returned fire and Honea receive fatal injuries as a result of that.” OSBI said that Honea used a rifle that was in the truck and fired shots at Hugo police officers, Choctaw County sheriff’s deputies and highway patrol officers during the pursuit.
