State Trooper Chad Walker remains hospitalized in stable but critical condition at Baylor Scott & White Hillcrest Hospital in Waco after being shot in the head and abdomen Friday night on U.S. 84.
According to the DPS Officers Association, Walker had stopped to check on a disabled pickup truck on the side of the highway around 8 p.m. when the driver of that truck got out and shot at Walker multiple times with a handgun, wounding him. The shooter reportedly retrieved a backpack from of his truck and fled on foot.
Walker was taken by air ambulance to the Waco hospital, and many law enforcement vehicles responded to the highway scene and began searching for the shooter, identified as DeArthur Pinson Jr., 36.
Pinson was found Saturday evening barricaded in a home off U.S. 84, where he was reported to have committed suicide.
Pinson was from Palestine and had spent 10 years in prison after being arrested for aggravated robbery in 2006.
