DPS: One suspect killed, another hurt in Monday night’s officer-involved shooting
MIDLAND, Texas (KOSA) - UPDATE: DPS has released the following information on Monday night’s chase and officer-involved shooting:
On June 29, 2020, at approximately 8:30 p.m., DPS Troopers were assisting the U.S. Marshals in a search for two wanted fugitives.
A Trooper located the suspects, and a vehicle pursuit ensued. During the pursuit, one of the suspects leaned out of the vehicle’s window with a shotgun and fired at a Trooper. The vehicle pursuit ended, and the suspects fled on foot, resulting in an officer involved shooting.
Both suspects were wounded and transported to Midland Memorial Hospital. The female suspect passed away at the hospital, and the male suspect remains in serious condition.
The suspects are Christopher C. Price, 43, of Huntsville, Texas, and Brittany S. Teichroeb, 26, of Odessa, Texas.
This remains an active investigation, and as such, no further details are available at this time.
UPDATE: New details on Monday night’s chase have been released.
According to Midland County District Attorney Laura Nodolf, the chase began in Ector County as U.S. Marshals were serving a warrant.
The chase made its way into Midland County on Highway 191 before the suspects left the vehicle and began running away on foot.
That’s when Nodolf says an officer-involved shooting happened. No law enforcement officers were hurt.
No other details have been released on the case at this time. DPS is expected to share more information later today.
A large police presence was reported near Highway 191 and Highway 158 in the western part of Midland Monday evening.
There is little information on what’s going on, but a reported chase ended in that location with DPS.
CBS7 has received reports of a possible officer-involved shooting and that it is a “very serious” situation.
We are waiting to hear back from DPS about what happened.
The north service road and westbound main lanes of Highway 191 between W Loop 250 and County Road 1275 were closed overnight as authorities investigated the scene.
CBS7 will continue to update this story as more information is released.
