Wednesday, June 24, 2009

An undercover Houston police officer was killed Tuesday night in a shootout with a man killed moments later by another officer, officials said.

The officer was identified as 42-year-old Henry Canales. He joined the Houston Police Department in 1993. The identity of the other man was not available.

Canales was part of an undercover team investigating stolen televisions when he was shot in the parking lot of a Walgreens drugstore at Hillcroft and Bellaire, officials said.

"He was not only an outstanding officer but an outstanding individual," Hurtt said early this morning outside of Ben Taub General Hospital, where Canales was taken after he was shot and later pronounced dead.
