A Kaufman County Assistant District Attorney was gunned down while walking to work Thursday morning, police say.
The victim, whose identity has not yet been confirmed, was shot multiple times while walking from the parking lot toward the county courthouse at about 8 a.m., officials said. The victim was transported to a nearby hospital where he later died.
“This is the next level (of crime),” Kaufman County Sheriff David Byrnes said Thursday at a news conference.
No arrests have been reported in connection with the shooting. Police said witnesses have reported two shooters wearing all black, one or both of them possibly wearing a tactical-type vest, and driving an older, silver Ford Taurus.
