A Bellaire (Texas) Police officer was fatally shot Monday while attempting to remove a subject from a vehicle at an auto body shop. The gunman also killed the shop's owner.

Corporal Jimmie Norman, 53, was a 24-year law enforcement veteran, reports KHOU.

The incident began when Corporal Norman attempted to pull over a Honda driven by Harlem Harold Lewis, 21, at about 9 a.m. Lewis refused to pull over, and then led the officer on a pursuit, where he struck a white truck.

Lewis led the officer to a parking lot of a Maaco auty body shop. When the officer attempted to remove him from the vehicle, Lewis fatally shot the officer, then fatally shot Terry Taylor, the owner of the shop.

Other responding officers then shot and wounded Lewis, who is in the hospital in critical condition.

IN A KINDER WORLD YOU WOULD HAVE RETIRED BY NOW AND BEEN FISHING WITH YOUR FAMILY. INSTEAD YOUR BEING BURIED BY THE FAMILY THAT LOVED AND SUPPORTED YOU.
RIP, I HOPE TO MEET YOU IN A FEW YEARS.

May you R.I.P. Here in TX. we do have the death penalty as I'm sure everyone knows that we lead the country in putting shitbags like this guy to death. Too bad this shitbag didn't die, and hopefully our system will not fail us when it comes to this person.
