TX: Off Duty Deputy Constable ; Gun Beats Car and Knife
"The suspect entered his vehicle that he drove to this residence, put it in reverse and attempted to run over the sergeant and pin him between the fence and the car," Collier said.
Investigators said the man then parked his car and got out with a knife, telling the officer that he would assault him.
"The sergeant told him put down the knife to not approach him," Collier said. "The suspect approached anyhow, at which time the officer discharged the weapon twice striking the suspect in the stomach."
The man was flown to Memorial Hermann Hospital by Life Flight. Officials said he was in critical condition.
