HOUSTON – Harris County Precinct 5 Corporal Charles Galloway was fatally shot early Sunday morning in southwest Houston, authorities said.
Galloway, 47, was a 12-year veteran of the force.
Galloway, who served in the Precinct 5 Toll Road Division, was promoted to corporal in 2020. Galloway, who had been serving the citizens of Precinct 5 since 2009, was also a field training officer, mentoring new deputies and teaching them the skills they need to be better officers, according to Harris County Constable Precinct 5 Ted Heap in 2020.
“Corporal Galloway was very much loved by the men and women he served with,” said Constable Ted Heap in a statement. “There’s a lot of broken up officers who he meant a lot to in their lives.”
