Convicted Felon Deon Ledet Open Fire On Houston Police Officers

During a news conference Tuesday, Houston Police Chief Troy Finner and other law enforcement leaders released bodycam footage related to the September 20 shooting that killed one police officer and wounded another.

“Transparency is transparency and when we said we would release body worn camera footage in all officer-involved shootings, that’s what we meant,” Finner said during the news conference.

On Monday, Sept. 20, Senior Officer William “Bill” Jeffrey was killed and another officer, Sgt. Michael Vance, was wounded while trying to arrest a man on drug charges in northeast Harris County.

Deon Ledet , the 31-year-old man whom the officers were attempting to arrest on drug charges, was also killed in the shooting.

Jeffrey was pronounced dead at a hospital following the shooting. Sgt. Charles Vance was transported in serious but stable condition and was released from the hospital several days later.

Jeffrey joined the Houston Police Department in 1990. He was 54. Vance joined the department in 1998. Vance is 49.
