MCTXSheriff Investigates Shooting in South Montgomery County
On December 25, 2020 at about 5:55 PM, deputies with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to the 9500 block of Broadway Avenue in Conroe, Texas in reference to a shooting call. Upon arrival, the victim, Tashona Jones (36- year-old female) was found in the residence, deceased from an apparent gunshot wound. During the investigation it was learned Ms. Jones was involved in a physical altercation with another female, later identified as Phylunda Theragood (41-year-old female), at the residence when a firearm was displayed. A struggle over control of the firearm ensued, during which time the firearm discharged, striking Ms. Jones.
Ms. Theragood was placed into custody for unrelated warrants. This is still an active investigation by the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and all others affected by this incident.
