ATASCOCITA, Texas — Two suspects are being charged in connection to a murder after Omar Ursin, a Harris County Precinct 3 constable deputy, was shot on his way home while picking up food for his family.
The suspects, Ahsim Taylor Jr., 20, and Jayland Womack, 20, were both out on bond from separate murder cases at the time of Ursin’s death, according to ABC 13 News.
Ursin was driving home after getting dinner on August 28 when he was shot around 6:30 p.m. A dark-colored sedan with tinted windows pulled next to the off-duty deputy and multiple rounds were fired from the driver’s side. Ursin, who was taken to a hospital, died.
“You know that this person has killed somebody. Then you give them a bond to be able to get out, and once they’re out, they are out back doing the same thing,” Royal Ursin, Omar’s father, said.
One of the suspects was arrested with Ursin’s handcuffs.
“In the midst of this tragedy, a picture of Deputy Ursin’s cuffs being used on the suspect as he’s being arrested for his homicide, is priceless,” Pct. 3 Constable Sherman Eagleton said in a social media post.
Police believe the motive behind the shooting stemmed from road rage, but the investigation is still ongoing.
