Texas Rangers and the Department of Public Safety continue to investigate a trooper-involved fatal shooting Sunday night that occurred in the Lout Town area south of Shelbyville.


DPS is saying Trooper Zachary Mills attempted to stop a stolen 2003 Dodge pickup on Hwy. 87 using throw-down spikes around 6:30 p.m., when the unknown suspect left the roadway and struck the trooper. The unidentified suspect reportedly continued to drive into a nearby pasture, where he was fatally shot.
