Texas trooper killed during traffic stop ID'd


Dabrett Black is being held at the Brazos County jail in Bryan, Texas, about 100 miles (160 kilometers) northwest of Houston.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott tweeted his condolences. We ask for your prayers for his entire family and his many friends and colleagues during the hard days ahead.

Allen, 41, was making a routine traffic stop on Interstate 45, just south of Fairfield, Thursday, when Black allegedly shot him with a rifle and sped away. "Excellent operation by numerous agencies to take this suspect into custody with no additional casualties", the Navarro County Office of Emergency Management said in a statement.

A Texas Department of Public Safety trooper is dead after being shot in Freestone County, and authorities pursued the suspected shooter into Waller County Thursday night before capturing him. He was treated for injuries that weren't life-threatening.

Allen, a 15 year veteran of the department, leaves behind a wife and three children.




Authorities say a Texas state trooper has been killed and they're looking for a man in connection to the shooting. Lindale News and Times stated that Black allegedly crashed into a deputy's auto when he was being chased by Smith County deputies.

It was reported that last month, a Dabrett Montreal Black of Lindale was indicted by a Smith County Grand Jury on two felony charges stemming from a chase involving Smith County deputies in July. Those charges were dismissed in 2016, but it was unclear from records why.

"With heavy hearts on this Thanksgiving, Cecilia and I express our most honest condolences to the family, colleagues and friends of the Trooper who was callously killed today in the line of duty".

A funeral is planned December 1 in Mexia, Texas.
