Burleson County Sheriff's deputy shot to death while serving warrant

The Burleson County Sheriff's Office says Sgt. Adam Sowders died after being shot shortly before 6 o'clock this morning.

A statement from the sheriff's office in Caldwell, about 70 miles northeast of Austin, says that "suspects" are in custody, but the sheriff's office has not released any information on how many people were detained or the purpose of the warrant.

A spokeswoman for the sheriff's office says Sowders was fatally shot when a team of officers "took fire" while entering the residence in south Burleson County. She says no one else was hurt.
