Witnesses said when the deputies knocked on the door, Dunkle grabbed a pistol and said he would not go back to prison.

The incident is being investigated by the Sheriff’s Homicide and Internal Affairs Divisions, as well as the Harris County District Attorney’s Police Integrity Unit. ..more.. by staff report
