Wounded Texas trooper shot in Frisco ‘in good spirits’ in hospital

FRISCO, Texas (AP) — A Texas Department of Public Safety trooper remains hospitalized while recovering from being shot during a Dallas-area traffic stop that led to 15-hour standoff and a suspect arrested.

DPS Staff Lt. Lonny Haschel says the injured trooper was “in good spirits” Sunday. Haschel declined to release further details about the trooper wounded Friday afternoon.

A suspect was arrested Saturday at an apartment complex in Frisco, 25 miles (40.23 kilometers) north of Dallas. Officials say 42-year-old Bryan M. Cahill faces a charge of aggravated assault on a public servant.

Haschel on Saturday said Cahill was taken to a hospital for treatment of serious injuries and was in the custody of the Collin County Sheriff’s Office. Sheriff’s officials Sunday didn’t immediately return messages on Cahill’s status.
