Chase update

A police chase involving at least one Hunt County Sheriff's deputy and Texas Department of Public Safety troopers ended with at least one suspect being shot.

According to Terrell Police Chief Jody L. Lay, just before 3 p.m. TPD officers responded to the incident on FM 986 approaching CR 245, but it never came into the City of Terrell. By the time TPD officers were on the scene, the chase had ended.

"KSO (Kaufman Sheriff's Office) arrived very quickly, as well as a number of other DPS Troopers," Lay said. "The other agencies had the situation under control and TPD was not needed, so our units returned to the City immediately."

"The incident never got near the TISD, but both TPD and TISD Police were ready to take protective action should it have neared the campuses of TISD," Lay added.

We expect more information about this incident this evening and will update you when that happens.
