Two suspects were arrested in connection to the death of an off-duty Harris County Precinct 3 constable’s deputy after he was shot while driving home, the sheriff’s office said
Ahsim Taylor Jr. and Jayland Womack, both 20, are charged with Deputy Omar Ursin’s murder.
Deputy Ursin was killed when he was driving home from picking up dinner for his family on Sunday, Aug. 28. The shooting happened at about 6:30 p.m. in the 11900 block of Madera Run in the Atascocita area.
According to authorities, a dark-colored sedan with tinted windows pulled up next to Ursin and fired multiple shots from the driver’s side. Ursin was taken to a nearby hospital, where he later died.
Records show that both suspects were out on bond stemming from separate murder cases when the shooting occurred.
Womack and Taylor will be booked in the Harris County Jail.
Pct. 3 Constable Sherman Eagleton noted one of the suspects was arrested with the fallen deputy’s handcuffs.
“In the midst of this tragedy, a picture of Deputy Ursin’s cuffs being used on the suspect as he’s being arrested for his homicide, is priceless,” Eagleton posted.
The constable’s post also contained photos of the shackled suspects, with one of the men sporting an ankle monitor.
