A man suspected of killing a Texas state trooper during a traffic stop was taken into custody more than 100 miles away, authorities said Thursday night.

The Harris County Sheriff’s Office announced on Twitter that the suspect was apprehended in neighboring Waller County. The Texas Department of Public Safety and other law enforcement agencies had identified the suspect as Dabrett Black (32), of Linsdale, Texas.

DPS said the trooper was shot and killed before 4 p.m. on Thursday during a traffic stop on Interstate 45 near Fairfield, about 145 km south of Dallas. The trooper was shot with a rifle and died at the scene, the agency said. The suspect then fled.

The trooper has not been identified.

The suspect was apprehended a short time later.

KYTX-TV reported in July that Mr. Black was charged with evading arrest, reckless driving and aggravated assault against a public servant following a policechase in Smith County.

Several Texas officials reacted to the trooper’s death. In a tweet, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz offered “prayers for the family and loved ones” of the trooper.


Texas Gov. Greg Abbott called the trooper’s killing a “heinous crime” in a statement on Thursday. Mr. Abbott also expressed his “most sincere condolences” to the trooper’s family.
