Allen, a 15 year veteran of the department, leaves behind a wife and three children.

For some , it will be a case of asking which horses have been at their most impressive this season that will give them the clues as to which Grand National horses to bet on .

Incident occurred in Freestone County at approximately 4:00 PM south of Fairfield on I-45. Authorities say Allen was shot with a rifle and died at the scene.

The suspect is a black male, 5-foot-11 inches tall and weighs 175 pounds. He is the second DPS Trooper to be killed in the line of duty this month.

The $500,000 bond is for two charges, Assault of a Public Servant, and Evading arrest. The WCSO reported shots fired prior to Black's apprehension, but did not indicate who opened fire. As law enforcement continues to search for the individual responsible for this heinous crime, I ask that all of Texas keep this trooper and his brothers and sisters in blue in their thoughts and prayers.

"Trooper Allen's dedication to duty, and his bravery and selfless sacrifice on this Thanksgiving Day, will never be forgotten", the department said. We ask for your prayers for his entire family and his many friends and colleagues during the hard days ahead.
