It's not the ending we prayed for, but we know that God is always in control and we have to have faith is wonderful design.
According to a post on the Department of Public Safety Facebook Page, it has been determined that Trooper Chad Walker is no longer displaying signs of viable brain activity. The medical professionals at Baylor Scott and White in Waco have performed extensive life-saving efforts, but at this time, Walker will remain on life-support until he can share the gift of life as an organ donor. This final sacrifice embodies Trooper Walker’s actions throughout his life and service as a Texas Highway Patrol Trooper.
According to a Facebook post by the Texas Department of Public Safety Officers Association, Chad Walker was critically injured Friday evening after he responded to a motorist assist on FM Road 2848 near the intersection of US Highway 84, approximately five miles west of Mexia in Limestone County. Trooper Walker was traveling southwest on FM 2848 as he came upon a disabled vehicle parked on the shoulder of the roadway. Trooper Walker pulled up behind the vehicle. Before Trooper Walker could stop his patrol unit, a black male, identified as Dearthur Pinson Jr., immediately emerged from the driver’s seat of the disabled vehicle armed with a handgun and fired multiple rounds at Trooper Walker through the patrol unit’s windshield.

As a result, Trooper Walker sustained a gunshot wound to his head and abdomen. Pinson returned to his vehicle, where he retrieved a black backpack and fled the scene on foot. Pinson later allegedly took his own life.
The Walker family is grateful for the continued support and prayers as they remain at Chad’s side.
