We have a reporter and photojournalist checking into the overnight shooting involving Victoria police officers. We will have a full report in Monday's edition.

If you have knowledge of the incident, please call the newsroom at 361-580-NEWS or email me or reporter Brandon Leonard directly at We encourage people to refrain from speculation with their comments here or on the breaking-news article we posted. In such highly emotional incidents, we encourage people to focus on the facts.

Our thoughts are with the officers involved and the apparent victim of a domestic assault. At the same time, we recognize the public may have questions about any officer-involved shooting. We want to pursue any of those questions in a responsible and fair way.
