Deputy ambushed at gas station appears to be victim of racial hate crime

AP/NY Post:
A sheriff’s deputy in uniform was shot and killed Friday night while filling up his patrol car at a suburban Houston gas station, according to authorities.

Deputy Darren Goforth, 47, was pumping gas into his vehicle about 8:30 p.m. Friday when a man approached him from behind and fired multiple shots, Harris County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Ryan Sullivan told The Associated Press. Once the deputy fell to the ground, the suspect fired more shots.


Police described the suspect as a dark-complexioned male who is believed to be between 20 and 25 years old, and stands about 5-foot-10 to 6-feet tall. He was wearing a white T-shirt and red shorts and driving a red or maroon pickup-style truck with an extended cab. Police said an intensive search for the suspect remained ongoing Saturday morning.

No motive was determined for the shooting. Harris County Sheriff Ron Hickman said Goforth, who was a 10-year veteran of the force, had a wife and two children.

The deputy was white and the suspect appears to be black in the photo.   The race hustlers in this country have stirred a lot of anger toward law enforcement since the promulgated the "hands up don't shoot" lie after Micheal Brown attacked an officer and was killed.  I find it interesting that stories about white cops killing a black suspect say that, but do not say it when the reverse has happened.   Will Obama attend the officer's funeral and talk about racial healing?

The suspect has been arrested by a SWAT team.  His mother apparently assisted in teh capture of her son.
