Authorities in Texas say the man suspected of killing a state trooper during a traffic stop has been taken into custody.

Waller County is located northwest of Houston.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott has ordered Texas flags at Texas Department of Public Safety facilities statewide to be lowered to half-staff in honor of fallen Trooper Damon Allen who was shot and killed on Thursday in Freestone County following a traffic stop.

According to the Hays County Sheriff's Office, authorities were informed via 9-1-1 that a man with a gun was breaking into an antique store at approximately 3:45 a.m.

Identified as Dabrett Montreal Black, the suspect fled the scene after shooting at the unidentified trooper working for the Department of Public Safety. Freestone County is about 90 minutes southeast of Dallas.

The suspect has been identified as 32-year-old Dabrett Black.

The suspect in the fatal Thanksgiving Day shooting of a Texas state trooper has a history of vehicle chases and other issues with law enforcement officers. Those charges are from Smith County where Tyler is. We ask for your prayers for his entire family and his many friends and colleagues during the hard days ahead. He then returned to the patrol unit after which the suspect fired multiple shots with a rifle at him, killing him on the scene. It was not clear from the statement who opened fire.

One incident in Texas killed one DPS Trooper and another injured a sheriff's deputy in shooting incidents.

"With heavy hearts on this Thanksgiving, Cecilia and I express our most honest condolences to the family, colleagues and friends of the Trooper who was callously killed today in the line of duty". Allen is the 221st DPS officer to die in the line of duty since 1823.
