DPS identifies victim of fatal auto-pedestrian accident


At approximately 12:40am on Friday, October 9, 2015, there was an auto-pedestrian crash in the eastbound traffic lanes of Interstate 10 near mile marker 877 in Orange County.

There is very limited information on this crash; however, Troopers were able to ascertain that a vehicle was traveling eastbound in the inside lane of Interstate 10 near mile marker 877.  Troopers suspect that the pedestrian may have been lying in the inside lane or had fallen down in the inside lane of Interstate 10 when he was run over and killed by the unidentified vehicle.  The vehicle that ran over the pedestrian did not stop.

The Texas Department of Public Safety did not positively identify the victim until earlier this morning (October 12, 2015).  The victim, Chad Eugene Shields (41) of Orange, Texas, was pronounced dead at the crash scene on Friday by Justice of the Peace Judge Rodney Price.

 Troopers continue to investigate this fatality; however, there was no physical evidence recovered at the crash scene.  The Texas Department of Public Safety is asking for the public’s help to locate the vehicle that ran over and killed Chad Shields.  If you were traveling in the area of Interstate 10 near mile marker 877 around 12:40am on Friday, October 9, 2015 and noticed anything suspicious, please contact the Texas Department of Public Safety at 936-699-7340.  This telephone is answered around the clock and messages should be left for Trooper Philip Brady.   There are no further details to be released.

Shooting injures tailgater after Cowboys game

ARLINGTON, TX (AP) - A man was shot and critically injured during an altercation at a tailgate party in a parking lot outside the stadium where the Dallas Cowboys and New England Patriots played on Sunday, police said.

Arlington police spokesman Christopher Cook said officers were alerted to a fight in a parking lot of the NFL stadium. They heard a gunshot as they arrived and found a man in his early 40s injured. The man was transported to the hospital with life-threatening injuries. He was later flown by helicopter to a hospital in Fort Worth for treatment.

The suspected shooter apparently fell while attempting to flee, was injured and was also taken to the hospital, Cook said. The suspect was charged with assault with a deadly weapon and will be jailed once he is released from the hospital.

The incident happened about 90 minutes after the game had ended but many fans remained and there were numerous witnesses, Cook said.

"There were still a lot of people who were tailgating after the game," he said.

The Cowboys lost the game to the Patriots. The Texas Rangers were also playing at the time in a baseball playoff with the Toronto Blue Jays on the other side of the grounds.

Cook said the cause of the fight was not immediately known. The identities of the two men have not been released.
