Northeast Harris County is currently the scene of an ongoing standoff between authorities and the man they believe is responsible for the shooting of a Harris County deputy Wednesday night (Aug 16) during a traffic stop.

According to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office, two officers have been shot after confronting the suspect, who has been identified as Terran Green, the subject of a statewide manhunt.

The two officers who were shot today were transported to an area hospital and are reportedly in good condition. 29-year-old deputy Joseph Anderson, the officer who was shot one day prior, is recovering.

Due to the nature of the incident, Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez warned residents near the standoff to safeguard themselves by remaining away from the scene.

“Please stay clear of the area, as this is an active scene,” Gonzalez said, adding that there are still questions as to whether the suspect is barricaded inside the residence by himself.

“We believe we have the location contained and there is no immediate threat to broader community. It’s unknown if others are inside the house,” he said.
