The Washington Times Daily - - NATION -

BAYTOWN | A highly re­garded Texas law en­force­ment of­fi­cer was shot and killed Mon­day mo­ments af­ter ar­riv­ing for work in an at­tack that prompted a mas­sive man­hunt for the gun­man.

The shoot­ing of Har­ris County Precinct 3 As­sis­tant Chief Deputy Clin­ton Green­wood did not ap­pear to be random, ac­cord­ing to Baytown police Lt. Steve Dor­ris, but a mo­tive was not im­me­di­ately clear.

Deputy Green­wood, a 30-year law en­force­ment vet­eran, was shot out­side a county court­house build­ing in Baytown, east of Hous­ton. He suf­fered a sin­gle gun­shot wound and was air­lifted to a Hous­ton hospi­tal, where he died.

The at­tack led to the lock­down of a nearby high school and a broad re­sponse by law en­force­ment as au­thor­i­ties closed in­ter­sec­tions as part of their search for the sus­pect.
