Houston, TX – A Houston police sergeant was fatally shot at a North Houston motel on Monday afternoon.
The incident occurred on Nov. 9 at the Taj Inn & Suites motel in the 7700-block of the North Freeway, KTRK reported.
No details about what led up to the shooting have been released by the authorities.
A witness told KTRK that they heard gunshots and then saw a police officer running toward the motel office.
“He was just bleeding everywhere, all over, and just not running right. He entered the office at the motel and he collapsed right in there,” the witness said.
Houston police have not released the name of the officer who was killed but a spokesman with the police union said he was a sergeant with the department, KTRK reported.
Please keep our Sgt who was shot and killed this afternoon in your thoughts and prayers, along with their family and all Houston Police Officers. We will not stop until we find the monster/monsters responsible.
