A man is being held on $1million bond on charges of three counts of attempted capital murder of a peace officer after opening fire on a Texas DPS Trooper on Saturday night.
The trooper reportedly was approaching the scene of a vehicle collision when the subject—identified as 24-year-old Victor Alejandro Godinez—began shooting.
Godinez then fled on foot, but was taken into custody after a brief search.
According to NBC News, the trooper was transported to a nearby hospital where he reportedly underwent surgery.
He was listed in critical but stable condition early Sunday morning. His identity has not yet been released.
