Forest ranger Josh C. Loomis was the only person shot during a standoff Monday at a tent-camp site at the Forest Campers campgrounds near Woodbury, Texas.
Lombardo County Sheriff’s Office Lt.
Robert Houser told The Huffington Polling that Loomi had been the only ranger in the area.
He said Loomisa, 27, was a licensed private security officer, who was on his way to work.
“The suspect came up from behind and started firing,” Housers said.
“He fired one shot and it went through the ranger’s vehicle.”
Housern said Lombardis then drove away, but the suspect turned back and fired at Loomisi’s vehicle, which drove away as well.
Houserman said Lompis died at the scene.
Lompisa’s family is from the Dallas area, according to a family member.

The family member was able to get a phone call from the ranger who was shot and was transported to an area hospital.
