The suspect in connection to the shooting death of Harris County Precinct 5 Deputy, Charles Galloway is described as a young Hispanic male. He is driving a newer-model, white Toyota Avalon.
At approximately 12:45 a.m. on Sunday, January 23, 47-year-old Corporal Galloway of Harris County Precinct 5 was attempting to make a traffic stop in the 9100 block of Beechnut when he was shot and killed by a driver.
Preliminary investigation revealed the driver exited the vehicle and fired repeatedly at Corporal Galloway’s patrol car. Deputy Galloway was struck multiple times and died on the scene.
“Corporal Galloway did not have an opportunity to defend himself in this brutal attack,” Harris County Constable Precinct 5, Ted Heap said. “We cannot have people like this on our streets. I do not want to raise my family, my grandchildren, in a county where this type of crime is running rampant.”
Corporal Galloway joined the Precinct 5 family in 2009, serving the residents of Harris County for more than 12 years, most recently in the Toll Road Division, where he served as a Field Training Officer.
“Corporal Galloway was very much loved by the men and women he served with,” said Constable Heap. “There’s a lot of broken up officers who he meant a lot to in their lives.”
