Default WM Texas Highway Patrol Trooper, 41 shot to death by the negro


Trooper killed identified; shooting suspect captured
11:10 PM. CST November 23, 2017

FAIRFIELD, TEXAS - The Texas Highway Patrol Trooper who was shot and killed during a traffic stop on Thanksgiving has been identified as Damon Allen, 41. Allen, who was with the department since 2002 was a husband and father of three children.

Allen was shot and killed at about 4 p.m. on Interstate 45 just south of Fairfield in Freestone County. He was returning to a patrol vehicle when the suspect fired shots with a rifle. Allen died at the scene, according to Texas DPS.

The suspected gunman, identified as 32-year-old Dabrett Black, of Lindale, fled the scene and was later captured in Waller County which is northwest of Houston.

Shots were later reported fired in the area where the suspect was spotted fleeing on foot. Texas DPS Troopers and multiple law enforcement agencies cornered Black before he was safely taken into custody around 9 p.m. EMS was on scene to check the suspect's condition.

Suspect info on officer shooting: Darbrett Black, black male, 5’ 11”, 175 lbs. Left scene driving a Gray Chevy Malibu LP# JDN4273.

Black has a previous criminal history that includes evading arrest and violence toward law enforcement, authorities say.

This is the Darbrett Black who is wanted in the death of the Texas State Trooper. His arrest history includes violence toward law enforcement officers. We must catch him soon. pic.twitter.com/wrIk8BVz9t— Denton County DA (@DentonCountyDA) November 24, 2017

In July, WFAA's sister station CBS19 in Tyler reported Black was jailed in Smith County after a car chase with deputies. The chase ended when Black struck a patrol vehicle and both he and a deputy were transported to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Black was charged with evading arrest, aggravated assault against a public servant and reckless driving.
