A sheriff's deputy was killed Thursday after gunfire erupted while he was serving a warrant at a home in Central Texas, the Associated Press reports.
Sgt. Adam Sowders was part of a team of officers entering a rural residence east of the town of Somerville to serve a warrant, Burleson County Sheriff Dale Stroud said. He was shot as the team entered just before 6 a.m. and later died of his injuries. No other officers were injured. One suspect is in custody.
