Unfortunately, this did not end in a case of DRT*.
CBS DFW: The man who Dallas police say ran over one of their officers Sunday night, was in the country illegally, according to Immigrations and Custom Enforcement (ICE). Additionally, Eduardo Gonzalez-Rios, 29, was deported three times since 2004, according to the agency.
He was first deported in November 2004, on the same day he was picked up near Harlingen, Texas. About six months later, in May 2005, he was picked up again near Harlingen and deported the same day.
His most recent ICE arrest was in Kansas City in September 2011. He was deported 8 days later. ICE does not know when or where Gonzalez-Rios entered the country illegally the last time.
Gonzalez-Rios is accused of hitting Detective Edmundo Lajun with an SUV early Monday morning outside the Kalua Discotheque, located at 2435 W. Northwest Highway. Police say he not only struck Lajun with his vehicle once, but Gonzalez-Rios also put the SUV in reverse to back over Lajun, causing him additional injuries. Lajun is in stable condition with broken bones and a laceration to his head.
Dallas Police opened fire on Gonzalez-Rios, who was admitted to the hospital following the shooting. He has since been transferred to Dallas County Jail and charged with Aggravated Assault on a Public Servant.
ICE says it will issue a detainer against Gonzalez-Rios while he sits in Dallas County Jail.
Dallas Police also released the following names of the three officers involved in the shooting: 8-year veteran Sgt. Shannon Browning, 5-year veteran Sr. Cpl. Antonio Barrientos and Sr. Cpl. Edmundo Lujan, who has worked with DPD for nearly 20 years.
