    Clopton had assisted a colleague with a traffic stop and was leaning into a patrol vehicle when he was shot from behind. It was not immediately clear from what distance Clopton was shot.

    Alden's son, Todre Clopton, is a police officer for the Biloxi Police Department. Todre talked to us on the phone and said his father was in surgery for 10 hours and is in critical condition. According to Harris County authorities, Alden has three brothers who are also law enforcement officers.

    From http://www.kltv.com/story/31719938/h...ted-to-recover (dtd Ap 14/today. Same as OP's first link.)

    "Clopton is the second Harris County law officer to be shot from behind in an unprovoked attack in the past year. Texas prosecutors in August charged a 30-year-old man with capital murder in the killing of sheriff's Deputy Darren Goforth, who was gunned down while filling his patrol car with gas." bbm

    The gunman fired 6 shots; the LEO was shot 4 times.

    Sad, sad, sad, but glad it as not fatal. JM2cts.
