A Texas sheriff in uniform was shot to death on Friday evening after filling up his patrol car with gas at a suburban Houston gas station. The sheriff has been identified as 47-year-old Deputy Darren Goforth, and according to reports, the gunman killed him without reason.

From CNN:

Deputy Darren H. Goforth, 47, was returning to his car after pumping gas Friday night.

The gunman walked up from behind him and opened fire for no apparent reason, Harris County Sheriff Ron Hickman said.

When Goforth fell to the ground, the gunman stood over him and shot him some more, authorities said. He died at the scene.

Goforth was a married father with two children. Texas officials have a man in custody who is believed to be Goforth’s killer.
