    “The officer is alive,” said Fort Worth Police Chief Joel Fitzgerald at a news conference. “We are happy for that.”

    He asked that the citizens of Fort Worth continue to pray for the officer, who was identified Tuesday evening as Matt Pearce, an officer who has been with the department since 2009.

    Police said around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday Pearce remained in critical condition.

    The road to recovery will be a long one for Fort Worth Officer Matt Pearce. We knew that when he was shot seven times in the line of duty last month.

    A 21-year-old man no-billed Wednesday [June 8] in connection with the shooting of Fort Worth Officer Matt Pearce may still face criminal prosecution after the Tarrant County district attorney’s office quickly filed new charges in the case.

    Tarrant County records show Ed Russell McIver Jr. of Weatherford was not indicted Wednesday on a charge of attempted capital murder and possession of a controlled substance, according to the Star-Telegram.

    “We believe strongly this case should be prosecuted and have re-filed those two charges to be presented to the next Grand Jury,” said Samantha Jordan, a spokeswoman for the Tarrant County district attorney’s office. “It is not acceptable to fire upon police officers acting in the line of duty.”

    A Parker County man accused in the attempted capital murder of a Fort Worth police officer was released on bond from the Tarrant County Jail Wednesday [June 15] morning.
    Texas state law requires prosecutors to secure an indictment against a defendant within 90 days. Since that didn't happen in McIver Jr.'s case, state law dictates he must be released or receive a bond he can afford.
    Conditions of his release including wearing both a GPS ankle monitor and a Scram device that detects alcohol and he cannot possess firearms or live with anyone that does. McIver must reside in either Parker or Tarrant counties and cannot consume alcohol or drugs.
    The new grand jury convenes next month to take on this case.
