AUSTIN – The Texas Office of the Attorney General released a statement today after receiving news that two OAG officers and a deputy serving the Harris County Sheriff’s Department were shot in the line of duty:

“This afternoon, two of our officers from the Office of Attorney General’s Fugitive Apprehension Unit were wounded while serving an arrest warrant alongside a deputy from the Harris County Sheriff’s Department.  The three wounded officers have been transported to a local hospital and are currently receiving treatment.  Out of respect for the officers and their families and for those who are still engaged in a very serious situation in Northeast Harris County, we will release no further information at this time.  Please pray for these officers, their families, and the courageous members of law enforcement who are involved.” – Marc Rylander, Director of Communications.
