Deputy shot dead while filling tank at gas station near Houston.

A sheriff’s deputy was assassinated at point-blank range while pumping gas at a suburban Houston gas station Friday night, shot dead next to his police cruiser, officials said.A sheriff’s deputy filling up the tank of his patrol car at a gas station near Houston was gunned down by an unknown assailant who walked up behind him and shot him multiple times, authorities said Friday.

Deputy Darren Goforth, a 10-year veteran of the Harris County Sheriff’s Office, was shot multiple times from behind and died at the scene, the sheriff’s office confirmed. The gunman fled in a red Ford Ranger from the Chevron station on West Road in a northwest Houston neighborhood and was still on the loose early Saturday morning. “The deputy fell to ground,” Dep.

It’s tough enough being a deputy and being in law enforcement in this country right now, but for people, the way that they are right now, I have no words for what this type of person did, the callousness is much.” Instead of a quick gun purchase by an undercover NYPD cop, the cop had a gun put to his head, forcing him to unleash a round of gunfire that critically wounded a suspect and seriously injured a bystander caught in the wrong place. Friday on an otherwise serene residential block in Mount Vernon when the cop, sitting in a car with his mark, was about to fork over $2,200 for a pair of guns, officials said.

Just then, the would-be seller, Jeffery Aristy, was joined by an accomplice, Alvin Smothers, 37, who jumped into the back seat with a pistol in hand in the Westchester County city— roughly two miles north of the city line — according to an NYPD source. The location of the shooting is less than 30 miles from the town of Prairie View, which was the town in which Sandra Bland was arrested on July 10 by a Texas Department of Public Safety trooper. Smothers pointed the pistol — later discovered to be a fake — at the head of the officer, a member of the NYPD Firearms Investigation Unit, setting the cop into action, but also putting the bystander, 61-year-old Felix Kumi, into harm’s way.
