At one point, deputies could be heard giving instructions to the man when they thought he was inside the house.

"Come outside with your hands up. Once outside, deputies will give you instructions on what to do," officials said. "If you do not come out, the dog will be released, and he will bite you."

Authorities said his mother wasn't aware they were searching for him as she had been at work. They also said they have reason to believe Henderson is armed.

Sgt. Kaila Sullivan, 43, was attempting to arrest Henderson, who was wanted on warrants, when she was hit and killed by his vehicle.

According to the police department in the Clear Lake area, Sullivan was one of the officers conducting the traffic stop at an apartment complex in the 2000 block of San Sebastian Court around 8:30 p.m. Tuesday.
