A Marine from southeast Texas who was killed in Iraq was remembered by family members and friends as a man of great faith who leaves behind six younger siblings.

Lance Cpl. Jeremy W. Burris, 22, was killed Monday while conducting combat operations in Anbar province, the Department of Defense said.

Brent Burris said Tuesday that his son was driving a patrol vehicle, accompanied by two other Marines when they hit an explosive device hidden in the road.

He survived the initial blast and helped get the wounded Marines out of the damaged vehicle, his father said. But when he returned to the vehicle to get some equipment, a second explosive detonated and he was killed instantly, Brent Burris said.

Brent Burris said his son had lived in Liberty, about 40 miles northeast of Houston since he was 12. After he finished home-schooling, Jeremy Burris moved to Tacoma, Wash., to participate in a Christian discipleship program. The military listed his hometown as Tacoma.

Jeremy Burris attended the non-denominational Cornerstone Church in Liberty, where he led praise and worship sessions for the youth group and was a guitar player during the main services.

“He was a precious young man who touched many lives,” pastor Mike Glazener said.

Burris stayed in Washington for almost two years before enlisting in the Marine Corps about 1 1/2 years ago, his family said.

Burris was assigned to 1st Battalion, 4th Marine Regiment, 1st Marine Division, I Marine Expeditionary Force, Camp Pendleton, Calif.

A man in a Montgomery County Courtroom as a witness in a case is recognized by a female in the court on another matter as the man that sexually assaulted her. As Deputy Don Smith confronted him and tried to verify a warrant he ran out of the courtroom. Running to the parking lot and jumping in his maroon pickup. As Deputy Moody started to pursue him he drove at a high rate of speed south on US 59 feeder to FM1314 turn around lane then back north on the feeder. MCSO entered the chase as the suspect exited the feeder at Community at close to 80 MPH and then cut into the Wells Fargo Bank parking lot. He ran through the parking lot to Community Drive, east on Community to Loop 494. At that point, he went north on 494 to FM 1485 then started east on FM 1485 toward the Harris County line. As several units stayed in the pursuit the suspect continued at 80 and 90 MPH running citizens off the road and attempting to do the same to deputies. Just as a unit told the dispatcher they were heading for Harris County Judge Metts whose courtroom he fled from was westbound from that very location. Judge Metts was heading to the courthouse from lunch and set up at the county line. Hearing how much danger the suspect was putting citizens and deputies in the Judge decided to have his weapon ready in an attempt to shoot out the tires as the suspect approached the bridge. Deputy Seals was able to get close enough alongside of the suspect and shoot out the rear tire when they got into an unpopulated area of FM 1485. He tried to get the front tire also but failed as the suspect tried to run him off the road. He also attempted to run an MCSO motorcycle unit off the road and Chief Deputy Barry Welch. The chase continued to Pin Oak Road where he ran off the road striking a stop sign and cable tv box. He then went airborne striking a tree almost five feet off the ground. Continuing he hit the edge of the driveway of New Caney Fire Station 153 demolishing the sign, almost striking the fire station, and continued to the next intersection where he struck a power pole knocking it out of the ground dropping high power lines across FM 1485 closing it for almost four hours. The suspect sustained minor injuries and was transported under guard to Kingwood Hospital where he was treated and released to Precinct 4 deputies close to 5 PM. Several family members appeared on the scene as the investigation continued. The suspect Michael Heck age 18 who lives nearby in Peach Creek had been indicted last week by the Montgomery County Grand Jury of Aggravated Sexual Assault. He now faces Felony Evading, and four counts of Aggravated Assault on a Peace Officer.No deputies cars or citizens vehicles were damaged in the chase.

Tonight Hardin High School Football was to be a tribute to Breast Cancer Awareness. The school sold t-shirts and $5.00 of each went to Breast Cancer Research. The players were planning on wearing pink tonight and the community was going to make a loop on the track.

Well, that changed late in the day today. Coach Haynes has told his players no pink. If you do you are on the sidelines tonight. Also if several of you want to wear pink and sit on the sidelines he threatened to forfeit the game.

The parents are outraged. Administrators did not respond to phone calls. The students were scared to go on camera telling us he would, “Haunt them”. We had to disguise their voices to ease their fears.

Several cancer survivors were in the stands, one even participated in the lap on the track in her wheelchair.

It may have been a message as the game started the time clock wouldn’t work. After some time they got it going.

Houston Police attempted to stop a vehicle at the Citgo station on Sorters Road at US 59. The vehicle sped off and HPD pursued it. A short distance later it pulled over. Officers were getting out on the vehicle when he fled North on Sorters Road to Old Sorters. He then continued up Old Sorters to Briar Chase and down Briar Bark where he bailed out of the vehicle on foot. HPD Officer Sanchez and Lt. Carlton Brown along with three wrecker drivers, Jose Jimenez with LaBuff Towing, Slinky with Slinky’s Wrecker, and Mike Hendricks with Humble towing chased the suspect into the woods. Where he stopped the car was only one block from his parent’s home. When Officers approached that yard they were told by family members to leave.

Soon additional HPD units, Montgomery County Sheriff’s Deputies and Precinct 4 Constables, and DPS Troopers were able to set a perimeter. New Caney ISD locked down White Oak Middle School which had let out prior to the chase and Ben’s Branch Elementary which was about to let out. Ben’s Branch students were delayed in being released as teachers and administrators escorted the children to the busses and waiting vehicles. All sports activities were ceased and those students brought into the school.

A young female from Cleveland who was also in the car was detained for a short time until it was determined she was just a friend of his and once the chase started he refused to stop and let her out. She also had no prior criminal history and cooperated with law enforcement officials.

After over an hour of searching using dogs and an HPD Helicopter, the search was called off. Just long enough for a radio call to come through that the suspect was at off Spears and Glory near Ford and Loop 494. At that location, HPD’s canine unit deployed and within minutes the dog took a bite out of crime.

Montgomery County EMS responded to the dog bite in which the dog left a mark large enough to require sutures to his right cheek of his buttocks.

Shane Berrones, age 32  was taken into custody with charges pending out of Harris County for the evading and open warrants out of Montgomery County for an incident on Loop 494 in which he was racing and struck a patrol deputy earlier this year. He told police he was living in his car under the bridge on US59 at the San Jacinto River.

At 9:59 p.m. two Black, males entered the Dollar General on FM 1774 just north of FM 149 near Magnolia. Displaying handguns they robbed the store. The suspects then fled to the woods next to the business. When units were dispatched they were just around the corner. As units approached they were advised that two Black males had been seeing changing clothes at the Exxon station just on the opposite side of the wooded area from the Dollar General.

As deputies approached the Exxon one Black male was seen near the front of the AT&T substation which is between the Exxon and Dollar General. One male was quickly taken into custody as the other fled into the woods.
