    TX - Attempted murder of Officer Jeff Garner, N. Richland Hills, 3 March 2003

    N. Richland Hills PD Sets Up Website In Hopes Of Solving Cold Case

    NORTH RICHLAND HILLS (KRLD-AM) – The department has been looking for a man who shot Traffic Officer Jeff Garner back in March of 2003.

    While an investigation has not established an identity of the gunman, it revealed that he not only robbed a bank in Watauga just prior to the shooting, he also robbed at least six other banks in Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas.

    “We consider it a cold case, but we do not consider it an unsolvable case,” says Detective Keith Bauman.
    So the North Richland Hills Police Department has launched a website in hopes of finding this man.

    “The website that we put up has surveillance videos from several of the robberies that occurred,” says Bauman. “We have the original radio traffic from our officer’s contact with this individual. We have a wanted poster.”
    As for Officer Garner, “He was shot in the lower extremities and has been able to make a full recovery.”

    Garner has since been promoted to lieutenant, in charge of the department’s professional standards unit.
