A North Carolina judge has ruled that police body camera video from the aftermath of a fatal shooting by an off-duty sheriff's deputy on Saturday in Fayetteville can be released to the public. © Rachael RIley/The Fayetteville O/USA TODAY NETWORK Memorials for Jason Walker who was shot and killed by an off-duty sheriff's deputy in North Carolina Jason Walker, a 37-year-old Black man, was shot and killed by Cumberland County Sheriff's Deputy Lt. Jeffrey Hash, who told authorities he had jumped on his vehicle.
A Texas deputy "was brutally murdered" during a traffic stop, Harris County Precinct 5 Constable Ted Heap said Sunday morning.
Charles Galloway, 47, was a 12-year veteran of the department and a field training officer, Heap said.
Galloway was conducting a traffic stop on a newer-model, white Toyota Avalon around 12:24 a.m. (1:24 a.m. ET), Houston Police Chief Troy Finner said.
"Witnesses describe the suspect as Hispanic male (and) say that he got out of his vehicle and immediately fired upon the deputy multiple times, striking him and then drove off," Finner said.
A witness told police an "assault-type weapon" was used in the shooting, the police chief added.
"This is senseless. It makes no sense whatsoever."
Galloway sometimes volunteered to work the night shift to make himself available for field training, Heap said.
Galloway is survived by a daughter, his sister and "the numerous officers here in Precinct 5 who are trained by him," mentored by him "and who are going to miss him tremendously," Heap said.
