The accused killer of a Reagan County Sheriff Deputy surrendered to a swat team just after 11am today.
Tear gas and stun grenades were tossed into the home, where 43-year-old Mark Madison had barricaded himself in an all-night standoff with lawmen.
Reagan County Sheriffs Deputy Josh Mitchell was shot last night after trying to stop Madison for questioning.
Mitchell later died at the Reagan County Hospital.
Ironically, Madison was taken to the same hospital for treatment and then flown by helicopter to a San Angelo hospital.
Reagan County Sheriff Jeff Garner said Madison had a troubled past with Reagan County lawmen.
A neighbor also said Madison had a trouble with substance abuse.
Madison is in undetermined condition at Shannon Memorial Hospital.
Charges are pending.
