Greenville – A Quinlan man will serve three years behind bars after pleading guilty to a 2009 shooting in Hunt County.
20-year-old Ricky Allen Ord entered the plea Monday to one count of deadly conduct. As part of a plea deal, a related charge of aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon was dismissed.
Ord was alleged to have used a shotgun to threaten a female victim in the community of Hawk Cove in December 2009. He reportedly fought with the women in an attempt to steal her purse while she sat in her vehicle. During the struggle a shot was fired, damaging the vehicle, but there were no injuries.
