Temple standoff leaves one wounded

Posted:
TEMPLE -

A Kansas man is recovering in the hospital after holding a standoff with police Monday night. According to authorities, 35-year-old Corey Sluder robbed a Subway on N. 29th Street in Temple.

Witnesses on the scene say Sluder entered the restaurant, showed a gun and demanded money. He was able to flee the scene with an undisclosed amount of cash.

A witnesses saw Sluder enter a vehicle and notified police. Officers attempted to stop the suspect vehicle which was being operated by a female driver. The driver refused to stop for the officers, and a pursuit began through the Western Hills subdivision. 

The suspect vehicle led police on a long chase, at times through oncoming traffic, until it finally stopped behind the Advanced Auto Parts in the 3800 block of S. 31st Street. Officers used a tire deflation device, and punctured two of the suspect vehicle's tires. 

The officers say Sluder appeared to be holding a gun to the female driver, and officers believed the woman was a hostage.  Officers held a perimeter around the suspect to prevent escape, and Temple Police SWAT and Hostage Negotiation Teams were notified.

Sluder eventually allowed the female to exit the vehicle after speaking with negotiators. Police say during the negotiation process Sluder began to cover the windows to prevent officers from seeing inside, but officers could see him using a knife to cut himself on the neck.

Sluder then moved from the passenger seat into the driver's seat of the vehicle. The Temple SWAT unit was deployed to take him into custody. A distraction device was discharged, and the entry team attempted to remove the suspect from the vehicle.   

The suspect still had possession of the knife, so the SWAT unit deployed 40 millimeter baton rounds to disarm him. The suspect was disarmed however he was able to pick up a handgun and pointed it directly at the SWAT Officers. 

The officers then shot the suspect once. Sluder was transported immediately to Scott and White Hospital for treatment where he is in stable condition. Sluder will be transferred to the Bell County Jail after his release from the hospital for an outstanding felony warrant from Kansas. 

Detectives with the General Investigations Unit determined that the female driver involved in the chase, 32-year-old Brandy Jean Kelley, knew about the robbery and was traveling with Sluder. Kelley was taken into custody, and transported to the Bell County Jail.

The Texas Rangers are investigating the officer-involved shooting as is standard Temple Police procedure in any officer involved shooting.
