Three HCP4 Deputies were tragically ambushed on the morning of 10/16/2021, and one deputy died from his injuries.
A message from the office of Harris County Precinct 4 Constable Mark Herman:
It is with great sadness that we must report that three of our deputies were ambushed earlier this morning and one of the deputies has died from his injuries at the hospital.
One deputy was shot in the back and is currently in critical condition in surgery. The other deputy was shot in the leg and is awaiting surgery.
All three deputies were working extra employment at a business when two of the deputies were alerted to a possible robbery in the parking lot. The two deputies were in the process of arresting a suspect when a second suspect ambushed them both from behind a vehicle. Our third deputy heard the gunfire and rushed to the parking lot and was shot immediately.
Our constable has been with all three deputies and their families at Memorial Hermann Hospital downtown since the incident.
We ask for your thoughts and prayers for all three deputies and their families.
The shooting scene is being worked by the Houston Police Department and we are being told they have a suspect in custody. At this time we are not releasing the names of our three deputies.
