Suspect in death of Texas DPS trooper arrested in Waller County

Suspect in death of Texas DPS trooper arrested in Waller Countyā€¯

Officials in Navarro County say a Texas Department of Public Safety trooper was shot and killed Thursday afternoon in east-central Texas.

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

According to the Waller County Sheriff's Office, the suspect, Dabrett Black, exchanged shots with deputies in Waller County near Liendo Parkway and Wyatt Chapel and fled on foot Thursday evening. He left the scene of the shooting in a gray Chevrolet Malibu with license JDN-4273.

The Texas Department of Public Safety said on Twitter that the shooting occurred before 4 p.m. Thursday on Interstate 45 south of Fairfield, about 90 miles (145 kilometers) south of Dallas. Allen is the 221st DPS officer to die in the line of duty since 1823. Jail officials said a bond hearing on the capital murder charge would likely have to happen in Freestone County, where the charge originated. Ted Cruz offered "prayers for the family and loved ones" of the trooper.

The experience was "very unusual for him", Angus told the magazine, "but he was always a confident guy, and we made it work". In an interview with the ABC's 7.30, AC/DC lead singer Brian Johnson said Young had told the band to "keep making music" .

The trooper killed hasn't been identified at this time. That's when the suspect fired multiple shots from a rifle at the trooper, TxDPS says.

KYTX-TV reported in July that Black was charged with evading arrest, reckless driving and aggravated assault against a public servant following a police chase in Smith County.

Following news of the trooper's death, Waller County Sherrif's Office said on Facebook that they were saddened by the death of a "brother". Those charges are from Smith County where Tyler is.

"With heavy hearts on this Thanksgiving, Cecilia and I express our most honest condolences to the family, colleagues and friends of the Trooper who was callously killed today in the line of duty".
