Before Walker could quit his patrol vehicle, the gunman opened fire throughout the car's windshield, hitting him in the head and stomach. Life-saving attempts over the weekend had neglected, the Texas Department of Public Safety.

"After wide-ranging life efforts performed by the @bswhealth caregivers, it's been ascertained that Trooper Chad Walker no longer shows signs of workable brain action and he stays on life-support till he could share the gift of life within an organ donor," the bureau tweeted.

Following the shooting, the suspected gunman, identified by police as DeArthur Pinson Jr., 36, supposedly recovered a black strap out of his car and fled the scene on foot.
