LUBBOCK — A Sanford man and Borger woman were arrested and charged with aggravated assault on a public servant, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle and evading arrest in a vehicle following a pursuit through two counties and an officer- involved shooting.
Sanford resident Danny Joe Greer Jr., 40, and Borger resident Khilyn LaShae Shouse, 19, were involved in the incident that occurred at about 10:30 a.m. Thursday in Hale County, said Texas Department of Public Safety Sgt. John Gonzalez.
Greer was reportedly shot in the leg and taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital. Shouse has been booked into the Lubbock County jail, where she remained on Friday afternoon.
At about 10:30 a.m., a Hale County Sheriff’s Office deputy attempted to conduct a traffic stop on a 2012 Chevrolet pickup traveling southbound on Farm-to-Market Road 789, according to Gonzalez.
While fleeing, one of the two occupants in the pickup shot at the deputy with a shotgun.
According to Gonzalez, the deputy returned fire and a pursuit was initiated with DPS troopers.
Lubbock County Sheriff’s Office deputies became involved as it crossed over into the county.
The pursuit reportedly ended near the intersection of County Road 3900 and County Road 6900 when, according to Gonzalez, Greer and Shouse fled on foot into an adjacent cotton field and took a position of cover near some farm implements.
Officers from the Hale County SWAT team, the Lubbock County SWAT team, Idalou police, Abernathy police and DPS were all at the scene Thursday.
Texas Rangers are continuing the investigation with the assistance of DPS Crash Reconstruction troopers.
