An Abilene man was shot and killed while apparently on his way to work early Wednesday morning on Hwy 277 – just north of Abilene – in Jones County. The case has been ruled a homicide, said Danny Jimenez, chief deputy for the Jones County Sheriff’s Office. Several bullet holes were observed to the driver-side door and window of the black four-door Toyota truck that the man was driving.  Jimenez said authorities are asking anyone who saw the deceased man’s truck between 6:30 a.m. and 6:45 a.m. Wednesday to contact law enforcement. Officials say it is the first homicide of the year in Jones County.
