    HOUSTON - The story from Houston Police Department narcotics officers surrounding a drug raid-turned-shootout that left five officers injured and two people dead doesn’t add up, according to a warrant reviewed by Channel 2 Investigates on Friday. The warrant was requested by an HPD sergeant with the Special Investigations Unit, regarding the controversial raid at 7815 Harding St. on Jan. 28. In the legal documents obtained by Channel 2 Investigates, a sergeant stated that he along with his partner were unable to track down any confidential informants involved in a drug buy at the home of 58-year-old Rhogena Nicholas and...

    (Police Chief Art) Acevedo had no explanation for why police did not find the drug that was the justification for the search, even though the house supposedly was under surveillance by narcotics officers between the controlled buy and the raid. Despite his repeated promises of "transparency" and "accountability," Acevedo was also hazy on the crucial point of whether Tuttle knew that the armed men breaking into his house, whose first action after entering was to kill his dog with a shotgun, were police officers. Narcotics officers executing search warrants "don't show up in uniform," Acevedo said, "but they do show...

    On Monday evening in Houston, a dozen armed men broke into the home of Dennis Tuttle and Rhogena Nicholas, a middle-aged couple who had lived in the house at 7815 Harding Street for at least two decades. The first man through the door, who was armed with a shotgun, used it to kill one of the couple's dogs. Tuttle responded to the home invasion by grabbing a revolver and shooting the man with the shotgun, who collapsed on a sofa in the living room. As Nicholas tried to disarm the intruder, his accomplices shot her. Tuttle returned fire, and by...

    Among the five Houston police officers injured during a shooting on Monday was a 54-year-old supervisor, described as being “tough as nails.” The unidentified senior officer, a 32-year veteran of the force who “breached the door” while serving a search warrant at a home of suspected drug dealers, “made entry” because he knew “his partners were down,” Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo said Tuesday. The officer was shot after jumping into the action and it marked “the third time in his career he’s been shot,” Acevedo said. He was previously shot in 1992 and 1997, he added. Acevedo explained that...

The Houston Chronicle obtained the results of the search warrant Friday, which also showed officers found two shotguns and two rifles inside the house. The house had been under investigation for about two weeks after HPD received information about a suspect that was allegedly selling narcotics. A confidential informant was sent to purchase heroin from the suspect on January 27. The informant told officers the...

    A Crawford Central School Board member is facing backlash for trading insults on social media and posting critical comments about President Donald Trump, including using variations of the phrase "clean head shot." A member of the public used the comment period at the end of Monday’s school board meeting to call out the social media activity of board member Glenn Tuttle. “One of our school board members made very inappropriate remarks on Facebook,” Bonnie Van Nort began without identifying Tuttle by name. “We are all entitled to our opinions, but as an elected school board member, I would think that...
