Shooting at Red River County Jail

Shown: The scene of this morning's shooting; the suspect's truck is on the right.
There has been a shooting outside the Red River County jail. A man in a black dually pick-up pulled up behind the Sally Port at approximately 11:30 a.m. Friday When a police officer approached (the truck was blocking the Sally Port) the man exited with a firearm and was shot. Latest reports are that he was alive and transported to a hospital by air ambulance. An earlier report he was dead was erroneous.

No one else was injured. Reports that a sheriff's deputy was shot or anyone else was injured, or that the suspect entered the jail are untrue. The Clarksville ISD was on lockdown briefly immediately after the shooting

We will have more information and updates as available. The full story plus more photos will be in next week's paper.
