BRYAN, Texas — Two victims were injured after a suspect, who later died by suicide, shot them early Sunday in Bryan.


Officers were investigating a disturbance that occurred at 5:45 a.m. in the 1100 block of Crossing Drive, according to the Waco Police Department.

Police said the disturbance was between two people who had a child together.

A suspect, later identified as 32-year-old Curtis McCoy of Bryan, Texas, returned to the scene around 7:30 a.m. and shot at a resident and an officer and then fled the scene.

Police said the officer and family member were standing outside when McCoy drove by the residence and fired multiple rounds out of his vehicle.

Around an hour later, Texas DPS officials located the suspect in pursuit between Hillsboro and Waco. The suspect subsequently shot himself and died from his injuries.

Police said both the resident and officer suffered minor injuries.

They have since been treated at a local hospital for their injuries and released.

The officer has since been identified as Sarah Popham, an officer with two years of service at the Bryan Police Department.

Police did not specify the earlier disturbance and if the victim and suspect knew each other.

An investigation into this incident remains active and ongoing.
