Charges have been filed against a suspect arrested in a crash in which a Houston police officer was injured at 12300 Gulf Freeway (South Interstate Highway 45) service road about 2:25 a.m. on Sunday (May 20).

The suspect, Jeremy Rene Leos (H/m, 27), is charged with intoxication assault-serious bodily injury of a peace officer in the 263rd State District Court.

A booking photo of suspect Leos is attached to this news release.

HPD Officer C. Brothers suffered two broken wrists and was transported to Memorial Hermann Southeast Hospital, where he was treated and released.  Officer Brothers is assigned to the Clear Lake Patrol Division and was sworn in as an officer in January 2017.

HPD Vehicular Crimes Division Sergeant D. Griffiths and Officer F. Flynn reported:

Officer Brothers was investigating a prior accident at the above address and advised the reportee the investigation would have to be moved to a safer location.  As Officer Brothers was placing the reportee in his patrol vehicle and attempted to buckle him in, he heard screeching tires and saw a white Dodge Ram pickup truck heading toward him.  The pickup truck then struck Officer Brothers and his patrol vehicle.  The driver of the pickup truck (Leos) then attempted to flee the scene on foot but was taken into custody with assistance from the HPD K-9 Unit and other responding officers.  Officer Brothers was transported by HFD paramedics to the hospital.  Leos was determined to be intoxicated and subsequently charged.

A shooter is in police custody and another suspect has been detained following a shooting that left multiple people dead and others injured at Santa Fe High School in Texas.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott says at least 10 people are dead and 10 people are injured, most of the students, after shots were fired Friday morning at SFHS, located about 30 miles south of Houston.

Dimitrios Pagourtzis, 17, who is a student at the school, has been arrested and charged with Capital Murder in the shooting. He is being held without bond.

A person of interest, who has only been identified as a student, has also been detained.

A Santa Fe ISD police officer, who just retired from the Houston Police Department, has also been critically injured in the shooting.

Possible explosive devices have also been located at the school and off campus. Law enforcement is working to render them safe.

The FBI, ATF, Texas Department of Public Safety, and local law enforcement including Santa Fe PD, Galveston County Sheriff’s department and Harris County Sheriff’s Office are all on the scene, after reports of shots fired came in just before 8 a.m. Friday.

Ambulances along with LifeFlight have transported victims to local hospitals.

The University of Texas Medical Branch reports that they are treating three patients, two adults, and one under 18 years old.

Students say they witnessed the shooter open fire inside an art class. Multiple students were struck by in that classroom.

The Western Conference duel is set.

The Houston Rockets and Golden State Warriors, the top two teams in the regular season, punched their tickets Tuesday night to the West finals with victories in Game 5 for each of their series.

Houston eliminated Utah, 112-102. Golden State beat New Orleans, 113-104.

Here is a look back at how it happened Tuesday night, a look ahead to Wednesday’s Celtics-76ers fifth game and what is going on with the idle Cavaliers.
