Undercover Deputy Shot In Northwest Harris County

An undercover Harris County Sheriff's Deputy is recovering today after he was shot during a drug sting in Northwest Harris County.

Authorities say a multi-agency task force was watching an 18-wheeler loaded with drugs when men in several other vehicles approached the truck and opened fire.

Officers then engaged in a gun battle with the suspects. One suspect was injured and an informant who was inside the 18-wheeler was killed.

Authorities have arrested several of the men involved in the shooting.

The undercover deputy was taken to a local hospital with a leg wound. The shooting happened near Highway 249 and Hollister, north of Beltway 8.
