Garrett was responding to a possible robbery in the parking lot outside a bar with fellow Precinct 4 Constable Deputy Kareem Atkins. Garrett and Atkins were attempting to arrest a suspect when a second suspect appeared and opened fire with an AR-15 rifle, striking both deputies.

Garrett was shot in the back multiple times. He has undergone multiple surgeries and had both kidneys and his gall bladder removed, his fiance said.

Richardson told news outlets that she hasn’t told Garrett that Atkins, one of his best friends, is dead as he remains in critical condition in the ICU.

This is the person I plan on marrying, and he’s in this predicament. It hurts a lot,” Richardson told KTRK-TV. “The nurse asked him to squeeze my hand if he can understand me, and Darryl squeezed a little bit.

Richardson said that Barthem, who was shot in the leg, also remains in the hospital but is expected to make a full recovery.

The Houston Police are continuing to investigate. As of early Monday, no arrests have been made.
