Arkansas police officer 'executed' in shooting

A Houston police officer was killed in the line of duty Saturday night, shot multiple times while responding to a domestic violence call, authorities confirmed.

A woman reported to police that her boyfriend was assaulting her and armed with two firearms. When Sgt. Christopher Brewster, 32, found the couple three streets away from the house police had responded to, the suspect shot him as he got out of his car, police said.

“Although he was mortally wounded, he had the presence of mind to draw his pistol out of his holster to protect himself in case the suspect came up and he also had the presence of mind and courage to put out and broadcast suspect information that was critical for the responding units,” Houston police Chief Art Acevedo said.

Acevedo said the shooting was captured on Brewster’s body camera. “What people will see is a coward who took the life of a hero."

Brewster died about 30 minutes after the shooting, Acevedo said.

The 25-year-old suspect, armed with a semi-automatic pistol, was arrested near a school after he fled the scene.
