UPDATE: Suspect Arrested in Killing of Texas Sheriff's Deputy Darren H. Goforth

Posted: Updated:

Authorities have arrested a suspect in the "execution-style" shooting of a uniformed Texas sheriff's deputy.

Shannon J. Miles, 30, has been charged with capital murder in the fatal shooting of Harris County Sheriff's Deputy Darren H. Goforth, officials said Saturday afternoon.

Harris County Sheriff's Deputy Darren H. Goforth, 47, was fatally shot Friday night after exiting a Houston gas station convenience store.

Miles was charged Saturday afternoon after being questioned as a person of interest by authorities. Police say they are not looking for additional suspects.

"We haven't been able to extract any details regarding a motive at this point," Harris County Sheriff Ron Hickman told reporters Saturday. He has called Goforth's death a "senseless and cowardly act."
