Texas authorities catch suspect in fatal shooting of state trooper

DPS Trooper Shot, Killed In Freestone County

Authorities in Texas say the man suspected of killing a state trooper during a traffic stop has been taken into custody.

On Interstate 45, DPS Trooper Damon Allen was shot and killed while making a traffic stop in Freestone County, just south of Fairfield, at approximately 4 pm on Thanksgiving Day.

The Navarro County Office of Emergency Management said Black was caught by collaborating with numerous agencies and no additional casualties were reported. Police say Dabrett Montreal Black, 32, of Lindale, may be the suspected gunman.

Freestone County is about 90 minutes south of Dallas.

"The suspect was identified as Darbrett Black, a black male 5'-11" and 175 lbs.

According to authorities, Black left the shooting scene driving a Gray Chevy Malibu LP# JDN4273.

Officials said if people see the suspect they should immediately call 911 or local law enforcement.

Meanwhile, according to KBTX, Black was last booked into the Smith County jail in Tyler on September 7, 2017 on the same charges. He then returned to the patrol unit and the suspect fired multiple shots from a rifle at Trooper Allen, who died at the scene.

Odin, who is a K-9 officer with the Waller County sheriff's office, found Dabrett Black after he fled on foot and hid in a field full of hay bales.

The $500,000 bond is for two charges, Assault of a Public Servant, and Evading arrest. It was not clear from the statement who opened fire. Ted Cruz offered "prayers for the family and loved ones" of the trooper.

Allen was the second Texas trooper to be killed while on duty this month and the first trooper in the state to be shot in the line of duty since 2008. Abbott also expressed his "most honest condolences" to the trooper's family.
