HOUSTON - A Houston police officer is dead and another man is in custody after a traffic stop Sunday morning.
Police say the officer was shot outside a Houston apartment complex after he pulled over a car and the driver ran away.
Police combed the area with a metal detector, hoping to find more evidence.
Houston Police say the officer managed to enter the vehicle's license plate number into his computer before he died. That evidence cracked the case and led to the arrest.
