A constable deputy was killed and two others were injured in a shooting early Saturday while they were working an extra job at a bar in Houston, according to police. One of the injured deputies was shot in the back, and the other was shot in the foot.
The incident took place around 2:15 a.m. The deputies had gone outside to address a “disturbance” — what may have been a robbery. They were trying to arrest or detain a suspect when they were “ambushed,” Jones said at an early morning media briefing.
A person of interest is in custody but police said they didn't know if that person is a suspect or witness.
Police said a suspect is believed to be a Hispanic male in his early 20s.
