CBS 7 News
"On behalf of the Hector family we would like to make a statement concerning a shooting involving a Howard County Sheriff Deputy. A deputy responded to a 911 call to the Hector residence in southern Howard County. When the deputy entered the residence he spoke with Mr. Hector, a 19 year old male, it seems he was placed in a position where the deputy had to use deadly force. The family is grieving and trying to process what happened. With the current information we have the family feels the deputy acted appropriately. This is a tragic situation and we also recognize that a deputy was forced to take a life and we understand how difficult that must be. Please pray for the Hector family and all involved."
