Ricky Lunsford, 52, was indicted today by the Madison County grand jury on charges of attempted first-degree murder, employing a weapon during the commission of a dangerous felony, aggravated kidnapping and aggravated assault. He will be arraigned in Madison County Circuit Court on Monday, Oct. 8. He remains free on $200,000 bond.
Around 12:20 a.m. on April 29, Jackson police received a call that Lunsford had forced his estranged wife, Mary Lunsford, at gunpoint, from Tap Bar and Grill at 719 Old Hickory Blvd. Shortly afterward, police received calls that shots had been fired on the parking lot. Officers arrived on the scene and took Ricky Lunsford into custody. He was armed with two handguns at the time of his arrest. Mary Lunsford was not injured.
The investigation indicated that Ricky and Mary Lunsford were both inside the bar but had not come together. Ricky Lunsford approached Mary Lunsford, placed a gun to her body and forced her outside. She was eventually able to break free and run. Lunsford then fired multiple shots at her. She ducked between vehicles and was able to avoid being hit. Four witnesses were on the parking lot and were in the direction of the gunshots. Several cars were struck by gunfire.
