UPDATE: Deputy involved in shooting

October 20, 2010 by Randy Keck

Weatherford Police Department

A Special Crimes Unit officer in Weatherford was involved in a shooting incident Tuesday, Oct. 19 at about 3:30 p.m.

The Fugitive Apprehension Strike Team, which is composed of members of the Parker County Sheriff's Department and Weatherford Police Department, was involved in an undercover narcotics operation in the parking lot of the Buffalo Wild Wings at 320 Adams Dr., a location chosen by the suspects involved. When officers attempted to facilitate an arrest of the suspects, they fled the scene, attempting to run over an arresting officer.

The officer was forced to fire upon the moving vehicle in order to defend himself. After shots were fired at the suspects, they continued to flee in their vehicle from the parking lot. Officers pursued the vehicle a short distance before the suspects eventually stopped at the west-bound I-20 406 mile marker.
 
When officers approached the vehicle, they found two suspects suffering from gunshot wounds. Medical treatment was immediately provided to the suspects. Their medical condition has not been released.

One officer is being treated for non-life threatening injuries.

“The deputy involved in the shooting is currently on paid administrative leave,” said Sheriff Larry Fowler, “which is per procedure while the investigation is being conducted.”

The narcotics investigation is ongoing and will be handled by the Weatherford/Parker County Special Crimes Unit. The officer involved shooting investigation will be conducted by the Texas Rangers as per protocol.
