DPS trooper shot dead near Dallas, suspect in custody

DPS trooper shot dead near Dallas, suspect in custody

Multiple reports said Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton released a statement that stated: "I am saddened to hear of the tragic death of a Texas Department of Public Safety trooper killed today in Freestone County".

A massive manhunt for the suspect involving several law enforcement agencies is now underway in surrounding counties.

Authorities say the gunman is Darbrett Black, who is now at large. "The suspect was identified as Dabrett Black, a 5'11" black man weighing about 175 pounds.

He left the scene driving a gray Chevrolet Malibu, license plate number JDN4273.

According to the Hays County Sheriff's Office, authorities were informed via 9-1-1 that a man with a gun was breaking into an antique store at approximately 3:45 a.m. This trooper died selflessly serving Texas.

Law enforcement officials have arrested 32-year-old Dabrett Montreal Black of Lindale after several hours after the shooting.

But I definitely was faced with situations at the beginning of the year that I had never faced before. Patrick said it took her many months to come to the realization her career is all but over.

DPS said Black, of Lindale, Texas, fled the scene in a vehicle and was spotted about three hours later more than 100 miles (160 kilometers) south of Fairfield, in Waller County.

Meanwhile, according to KBTX, Black was last booked into the Smith County jail in Tyler on September 7, 2017 on the same charges.

Investigators say the shooting happened during a traffic stop. It was not clear from the statement who opened fire.

The $500,000 bond is for two charges, Assault of a Public Servant, and Evading arrest.

One incident in Texas killed one DPS Trooper and another injured a sheriff's deputy in shooting incidents. Ted Cruz offered "prayers for the family and loved ones" of the trooper. Those charges are from Smith County where Tyler is. Abbott also expressed his "most honest condolences" to the trooper's family.
