Henderson Co. Sheriff's investigator shoots suspect while serving warrant

HENDERSON COUNTY (KYTX) - A Henderson County Sheriff's Office deputy was executing a narcotics search around 9:15 p.m. in the home of Daniel Richard Vasquez, 33, in the Hidden Hills Harbor subdivision outside of Mabank.

The Vasquez was shot in the abdomen by a sheriff's investigator and later died at ETMC Gun Barrel City, says Maj. Botie Hillhouse, with the sheriff's office. The deputy was not injured.

Judge Dale Blaylock held inquest and had the body sent to American Forensics for autopsy.

The incident is under investigation by the Texas Rangers and the Henderson County District Attorney's office, but the deputy has not been placed on any sort of administrative leave as of Tuesday, Hillhouse said.
