Investigators still trying to make sense of College Station shooting

HOUSTON (FOX 26) - Fidelity Street in historic College Station is still, very much, an active crime scene. Investigators are still trying to make sense of it all.

There's still much we don't know about Thomas Alton Caffall, 35, the man officers shot and killed in a shootout on Tuesday.

That's after investigators say Caffall killed two people and injured three others. Detectives have been able to get inside his home that was at the center of the deadly shooting.

Chief Jeff Capps is with the College Station police department.

"Investigators have been able to recover long guns and a pistol from the scene," Capps says.

Law enforcement officers also went door to door in the community Caffall lived in. They want to ensure no stone has been left unturned and no witness ignored...

Flaws have long plagued Harris probation agency

Pervasive problems - marked by chaotic record-keeping, rampant human error and ineffective oversight - run deeper at Harris County's probation department than courthouse insiders may have imagined, according to thousands of documents obtained by the Houston Chronicle.

After a jarring court hearing last month cast doubt on the accuracy of the department's 300,000 annual drug tests, its director and two lieutenants have resigned, the District Attorney's Office and some judges have shunned all lab results, and state officials have launched an investigation.

"There was no part of the process that was exempt from error after error after error," said Lisa Andrews, the lawyer who put the agency on trial for three days while defending a probationer. "There were errors from the time someone walked in and showed their identification all the way until the data was uploaded to the county's computer."...

Defense invokes clergy rule in beer theft, robbery

By Chris Paschenko - The Daily News

GALVESTON — A pastor testifying Friday in a beer shoplifting-turned-robbery trial didn't have to tell the jury how he learned of a parishioner's arrest when the defense attorney invoked the clergy privilege rule.

The Rev. Shawn Plant was testifying Friday in the punishment hearing of David Angel Ramos, 42, who was convicted Thursday of robbery in a Jan. 15 incident at Kroger, 5730 Seawall Blvd., in Galveston, prosecutor Brandon Sims said.

Ramos was accused of loading a shopping cart full of beer and bypassing the cashier on the way out the front door.

A beer distributor drew a Kroger employee's attention to the incident, and employees chased Ramos, who left the beer behind, Sims said. The incident occurred at 11:30 a.m. on a Sunday, just minutes from kickoff of the Houston Texans playoff game with the Baltimore Ravens, Sims said....
