The killing of a well-known law enforcement professional in Baytown this week is having repercussions in Houston.

During his long career, Clint Greenwood worked for the Harris County District Attorney’s unit that investigates police misconduct, as well as for the internal affairs division at the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.

Now, people associated with the slain deputy are reportedly under armed protection.

One of them is Devon Anderson, the former Harris County District Attorney.

The Baytown Police Department leads the investigation of Greenwood’s killing.

Its spokesman, lieutenant Steve Dorris, thinks that, although they are not the law enforcement agency that is guarding Anderson, protecting the former District Attorney makes sense.

“With the nature of this homicide, as brazen as it was, you know,” Dorris notes “the natural thought process would be to have a little bit of concern for anybody else that may have had any dealings with this individual that committed the crime.”

Dorris says they are getting tips and continue to pursue leads.

The Baytown Police Department has released video of a man who was at the crime scene the morning Greenwood was killed.

The funeral for deputy Greenwood will be held this Thursday at Houston’s Second Baptist Church.
