female identified as Kelly Danielle Brumley were both pronounced dead on scene
by Judge Jack Brown JP 1-1. The cause of death is pending autopsy results being
conducted by the Galveston County Medical Examiner's Office. The Sheriff's
Office Deputy was treated on scene f

Brazoria County Sheriff's Office along with the Brazoria County District

for his arrest at the time of the incident. One for unlawful possession of a
firearm by a felon and the second for tampering with identification numbers.

Glad the deputy survived this and took care of these two repeat offenders - I don't like seeing people get hurt, not even these cretins. But if someone has to go, let it be the bad guys.

Law Enforcement Officers always seem to be in the crosshairs of fire by criminals but in this case it backfired and thank God the outcome came out right and hope this Deputy gets the assistance he needs to get through this incident! Good job!
