Off Duty Deputy Exchanges Fire with Suspect
An off-duty Harris County Sheriff’s deputy was forced back on duty and onto the job unexpectedly when he bore witness to a hit and run incident. The deputy followed the suspect of the hit and run in his car to attempt to get a description and license plate number for the suspects’ vehicle. The pursuit ended abruptly when the suspect crashed into a light pole on Greens Bayou Street. The deputy exited his vehicle and identified himself as a police officer. When this happened the suspect got out of his vehicle and opened fire on the deputy, who returned fire. No one was injured. The suspect then fled on foot into nearby wooded areas and remains at large.
