Update: Shannon J. Miles, 30, pictured below, is now in custody facing capital murder charges. The gunman, who was captured on the surveillance footage, drove away after the shooting in a red Ford Ranger, authorities said.
Sheriff Doforth appears to have been targeted because he was law enforcement, no other reason.
I wonder if Obama will say we have to get rid of guns.
It’s open season on law enforcement. Where are the Blue Lives Matter protesters?
A man is currently being questioned over the execution style killing of a Harris Country sheriff’s deputy. The Deputy was filling up the gas tank of his service vehicle when the killer came up from behind.
The officer, Deputy Darren Goforth, 47, is married with two children.
As he was pumping gas Friday night, a man came up from behind, said nothing, and fired. He fired even after the Deputy fell to the ground and he fired until he died.
“He was literally gunned down in what appears to be an unprovoked, execution-style killing,” Sheriff Ron Hickman said. “I have been in law enforcement for 45 years, I have never seen anything this cold-blooded.”
A woman was seen crying hysterically and seemingly in shock over the sheriff, screaming that he was her friend.
After an intense manhunt, authorities converged on a home in Copperfield based on a tip.
The suspect’s mother said he didn’t do it and was home with her.
The police had been looking for a “dark-complexioned” man. I guess they are not allowed to say black.
