Gunman Fatally Shoots Texas Deputy at Gas Station Without Cause

At a Houston-area gas station, a uniformed Texas sheriff's deputy was shot "execution-style" while fueling his car. Deputy Darren H. Goforth, 47, died at the seen. Harris County Sheriff Ron Hickman said "He was literally gunned down in what appears to be an unprovoked, execution-style killing. I have been in law enforcement for 45 years, I have never seen anything this cold-blooded."

Without saying a word, the gunman walked up from behind Goforth and shot him without any apparent reason. After Goforth fell to the ground, the gunman shot him several more times. The alleged gunman has been arrested; his name is Shannon Miles. The Harris County Sheriff's Office also released surveillance video stills.
