A Fayette County sheriff's deputy has been shot and critically wounded—and a suspect is in custody—after an attempt to serve the suspect with an arrest warrant ended in a gunfight and a three-hour standoff in La Grange, Texas.

Authorities say that around 1800 hours on Thursday, Deputy Calvin "CJ" Lehmann was attempting to serve a man with a warrant charging him with failure to register as a sex offender, reports the Associated Press.

The 32-year-old deputy was listed in stable condition at a hospital Friday, but County sheriff’s spokesman David Beyer told McClatchy that Lehmann has “lost his sight in one eye, and they are trying to save the other eye.”

Deputy Lehmann is a single dad with three daughters, according to KVUE.

My thoughts are prayers go out to Deputy Lehmann and his daughters, may all of them stand strong and triumph over this terrible situation. If Deputy Lehmann is ultimately not able to return to his duties as a law enforcement officer, the perpetrator should be charged, tried and convicted of killing a police officer. While the man himself may have survived (and I pray that he does) the law enforcement officer part of him was lost forever, and that should carry the same penalty as actually killing the man/woman in uniform.
