Three officers were shot and a suspect is now dead in a five-hour standoff in Houston on Tuesday

A man accused of shooting three law enforcement officers in Houston on Tuesday has been pronounced dead. Daniel Trevino, 25, reportedly shot three officers when they were serving an arrest warrant, and the officers fired back. Trevino was later found dead from a self-inflicted gunshot to the head shortly after 6 p.m. Tuesday.

A SWAT team standoff lasted all afternoon and into the early Texas evening, and Trevino allegedly fired shots at the SWAT team when they approached the home with intentions of firing tear gas inside where Trevino had barricaded himself.

A Harris County Sheriff's deputy may lose a finger after getting shot in his hand. An agent with the Texas Attorney General's (AG) Office was shot in the face, torso and ankle, and another AG officer was shot in the leg, according to the HCSO spokesperson. All three are expected to recover and their injuries aren't considered life-threatening.

Authorities say Trevino had a history of violence against law enforcement and women, and had a rap sheet dating back to 2011.

"The warrant that was being served was violation of a protective order," said HCSO Chief Deputy Edison Toquica.

His most recent charge was Sept. 20 with aggravated assault of a family member, threatening to kill her and her her children at gunpoint. Investigators said the woman told them Trevino said, "I'll kill you and all your children."

Trevino, who was scheduled to appear in court this Thursday, was released on $40,000 bond on Oct. 31 — more than a month after his arrest.

According to, some of Trevino's other charges include:

  • Sept. 2018 — Aggravated assault of family member
  • May 2015 — Possession of firearm by felon
  • March 2015 — Possession of marijuana
  • April 2014 — Theft
  • Oct. 2012 — Assault
  • Sept. 2011 — Assault/Criminal mischief

The Texas Office of the Attorney General released this statement on Tuesday's shooting:

"This afternoon, two of our officers from the Office of Attorney General's Fugitive Apprehension Unit were wounded while serving an arrest warrant alongside a deputy from the Harris County Sheriff's Department. The three wounded officers have been transported to a local hospital and are currently receiving treatment.

"Out of respect for the officers and their families and for those who are still engaged in a very serious situation in Northeast Harris County, we will release no further information at this time. Please pray for these officers, their families, and the courageous members of law enforcement who are involved."

Another HCSO deputy was injured in a car crash when he was escorting one of the ambulances to Ben Taub Hospital, where all officers were taken.
