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

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. Other law enforcement agencies joined the sheriff’s office in an intensive search for the gunman late Friday night. “We’re currently working to ascertain the physical description or identity of the suspect,” Mr. An witness who arrived at the scene just after the shooting told Houston’s ABC13 that a woman who said she was the deputy’s best friend was laying on top off him and crying. 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.
