HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- A Houston police sergeant died Saturday after a shooting in Houston's East End, according to police chief Art Acevedo.

Sgt. Christopher Brewster was responding to a domestic disturbance call on Avenue I just after 5:45 p.m.

That call was from a female who advised dispatchers that her boyfriend was assaulting her and that he was armed with two weapons, Acevedo said.

Brewster arrived less than five minutes later to find the couple had left the location, but were found walking in the 7400 block of Avenue L. Brewster came under fire as soon as he tried to exit his patrol cruiser, according to Acevedo.

Officer Christopher Brewster has died. He was just 32. Leaves behind a wife, parents, and a sister. He was promoted the Sergeant nine months ago. #abc13eyewitness

Brewster was hit multiple times, but still managed to draw his weapon and radio a description of the suspect to other responding officers.

Arturo Solis, 25, is believed to be the shooter, Acevedo said. Solis has a lengthy criminal history including a charge of assault causing bodily injury.
