Deputy killed in ambush: Texas Deputy Shot, Texas authorities pleaded for the public’s help Saturday in finding the person who fatally shot a sheriff’s deputy in the back as he pumped gas, saying Saturday the killing was a “cold-blooded execution.”

Harris County Sheriff Ron Hickman said no one was in custody but investigators are “talking to people” about the shooting Friday night.

Earlier Saturday, Sgt. William Kennard of the Texas Department of Public Safety said a man “believed to be the alleged gunman” was in custody and being questioned, though he hadn’t been charged. The reason for the discrepancy wasn’t clear.

“I plead today for the public’s assistance in our efforts to bring the suspect to the justice he so rightfully deserves,” Hickman said at an afternoon news conference.

The sheriff said surveillance video shows people drove up to the Houston-area Chevron station while the shooting was happening, and he asked them to come forward.
