About 630pm Saturday night a Montgomery County Deputy and his wife stopped at the Shell station on Sorters Road and Summer Hills in Porter. As he exited the store carrying a bag of ice, two black males attacked him, taking him to the ground kicking him and attempting to get his billfold. His wife who was sitting in the passenger seat of their truck saw what was happening and armed with her pistol went around to her husband. The robbers seeing the gun fled to a waiting red Chevrolet extended cab pickup. The deputies wife shot several rounds at the suspects as did the deputy. It is unknown if the suspects were hit, however the truck was. The deputy was taken to Memorial Northeast Hospital in Humble. Besides facial injuries his jaw is broken in two places.
Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office is investigating with assistance of the Texas Rangers and the Montgomery County District Attorneys Office.
The sad part of the situation is the security video shows not just the suspects and the incident but the large number of customers and witnesses who observed the scene and either did not help or left the scene without offering any statements.
The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office would like to speak to anyone who may have witnessed the incident.
