Prosecutors to seek death penalty for suspect in fatal shooting of Austin police officer

Prosecutors will seek the death penalty for a man charged in the fatal shooting of an Austin police officer.

Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg said Tuesday that she would pursue the death penalty against Brandon Montgomery Daniel. Daniel is charged with capital murder in the April 6 shooting death of Senior Officer Jaime Padron.

Authorities say the 40-year-old Padron responded to reports of a disturbance involving a drunk man at a Walmart around 2:30 a.m. The suspect tried to run and the officer, a former Marine, chased him. Authorities say that in the ensuing tussle, the suspect produced a semi-automatic pistol and shot Padron.

Thousands of people attended a memorial service for Padron in Austin.
