SHERMAN, Tex. -- After a beating in Sherman Wednesday night, four suspects are in custody Thursday.

Officers found the 43-year-old victim in the parking lot of the 'crossroads motel' in the 2400 block of Texoma Parkway. He had been severely beaten with a tire iron.

Police found the suspects at a nearby mobile home park. Three of them are under the age of 18.

"They beat the man with a tire iron, attempted to hit him with a fire extinguisher they ripped of the wall. None of it’s acceptable or appropriate. They will be charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. They could have easily killed the individual," Sherman Police Sgt. Bruce Dawsey said.

Officers say they also found a lug wrench at the scene.

The fourth suspect is Phillip Michael Johnson, 19, who is also known as ‘Pookie’.

All four suspects were arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Police say they know who the fifth suspect is and are getting a warrant for his arrest.

The report says the assault stemmed from an argument over money that the victim owed one of the suspects.

    jess i agree with everything you just said. we didnt say you said anything bout black or white, that was for the ones who keep bringing color into it. and for those people...not all of them are black.

    Guilty by Association, that's unfortunatley what the law says. When you with people that do dumb things and you take part in it, guess what. Maybe the evidence will go your way and if one of your buddies actually admits to using the tire iron and no one else, and from the looks of things they aren't gonna own up to it. And I didn't say anything about black/white or whatever. Plus, you just admiting to fighting the guy. Maybe you should enlighting me on just what "live my life and be happy" means in your world because all the trouble you just made for YOURSELF doesn't add up. My little bro has been to jail several times, DID HE DESERVE IT YES!!!!

    If people owe me money I don't beat them up. Just suck it up and go on. MLK dream was for you to be able to get good jobs and have a good life, not going around beating people up and expecting all of us to make your welfare living.

    yall keep saying he made a mistake spelling a word is a mistake but four guys on one whether with a tire iron or not is no mistake my husband went to a high school in dallas that was mostly black and couldn't go to the bathroom without having to fight not one but four or five black guys was that a mistake?

    and i know hitting him with tire irons wasnt right thats y i wasnt doing it yall keep dancing around to everything else but thats the man thing not wat it was about or how many people it was but wat i actually did and all i did was fight the guy so i shouldnt b the target whoever did the hitting with weapons should but once again no one looks at the evidence all they see is a black guy who knows people that do wrong things and is in a area that is known for something "bad" and start throwing all these accusations around. all im trying to do is live my life and b happy while i can i dnt need u people judging me 4 one little mistake i didnt make.

    Pooky, four people on one, sorry but in my eyes you are a coward and a chicken, regardless of what it was for or about. And you still have the guall to "get on your computer" and make more threats, unbelievable. I think we are smart to say something on the Net and not in person because you can't seem to take a fight one on one and you use unneeded weapons at that. Excuse us for not knowing the correct terminology for all the nicknames, everyone spells them differently.
