TX DPS seeking suspect in trooper shooting

Manhunt continues for suspect

Law officers today continued an exhaustive manhunt in East Texas for a former law enforcement officer suspected of killing a state trooper at the end of a traffic chase Tuesday night in Marion County.

Brandon Wayne Robertson, 37, is named in a warrant charging him with capital murder.

Robertson was last known to be driving a light blue 1997 Dodge Intrepid with Texas tags 039 LCG, authorities said.

Texas state Trooper Scott Burns, 39, was killed just before 8 p.m. east of Lake O' The Pines after a brief chase that ended at a rural crossroads near the Kellyville community.


Authorities said Burns had just pulled over a car when the driver got out with a shotgun and started shooting before the trooper could get out of his car. Residents who heard the police car's siren and then gunshots called 911.


Burns had been with the Department of Public Safety for five years. He was married with a five-month-old baby.
