Deputy Killed at Courthouse, Gunman Sought

The Texas Rangers, Harris County Sheriff's Office, Harris County Precinct 3 Constable's Office and Gulf Coast Violent Offenders Task Force are assisting the Baytown Police Department in search of the suspect. According to the authorities, it is unclear if Greenwood was being specifically targeted or if it was a more random act.

"My heart goes out to the family and friends of Assistant Chief Deputy Greenwood and the Harris County law enforcement community in the wake of this heinous murder", Gov. Greg Abbott said in a statement. They were able to get him help, flying him via Life Flight to Memorial Hermann Hospital, but sadly, he has died of his injuries.

Assistant Chief Deputy Constable Clint Greenwood died after being shot at the Baytown Texas Courthouse.

So far, no details on the shooter have been released and the suspect is believed to be still on the run.

Authorities say the gunman who killed Mark Hasse outside the Kaufman County courthouse later fatally shot the county's district attorney and his wife.

The motive of the shooting is now unknown as well as how many people were involved. "This is a reminder to pray for and support all law enforcement officials in our state, especially at this time of grief". The courthouse and neighboring Sterling High School were placed on lockdown, in addition to several businesses in the area.
