An intense manhunt continues for the gunman wanted in the shooting of a Harris County sheriff’s deputy during a traffic stop in northeast Harris County on Wednesday.
Authorities identified the suspect accused of shooting the deputy as 34-year-old Terran Green. HCSO described him as a Black man, 5’4″, 180 lbs, with brown eyes and black hair. He was wearing a gray shirt and black shorts.
At one point, authorities identified 37-year-old James Green, the passenger, as a second suspect. HCSO said he was located and questioned, but no charges have been filed at this time. Details around his involvement remain unclear.
A Blue Alert, which is for wanted suspects who have either killed or seriously injured a law enforcement officer, was issued for both men overnight. Deputies did not say how the two suspects are related.

Overnight, the blue 2016 Ford Escape the suspect was last seen in was found at an apartment complex on Airtex Boulevard near Ella Boulevard, about 13 miles away from the original shooting scene. It’s unclear what led investigators to the apartment complex in the first place.
The shooting happened at about 7:39 p.m. in the 13500 block of Homestead Road near Greens Bayou. Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said the deputy was conducting a traffic stop, but within minutes, dispatchers received reports that an officer was down. Authorities said he was shot by someone in a blue SUV.
