Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez’s statement on the resolution
of Shannon Miles’ capital murder case

Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez issued the following statement on Wednesday in response to Shannon Miles’ capital murder plea agreement:

“Two years ago, the Harris County Sheriff’s Office family suffered a terrible loss when our brother, Deputy Darren Goforth, was ambushed and gunned down. Deputy Goforth served the residents of Harris County for nearly a decade. He will always be remembered for his service, his bravery, and his sacrifice.

Today, the Goforth family and the Harris County Sheriff’s Office family are pleased to learn that justice will be served upon Deputy Goforth’s killer. We are grateful to Special Prosecutor Brett Ligon and his team for their hard work to bring this terrible case to a fair resolution.

To the Goforth family, you will always be part of our family and our thoughts and prayers remain with you.

Finally, I want to thank the men and women of the Harris County Sheriff’s Offic e family who faithfully serve our community with courage and dignity. We are grateful for our community’s support and trust, which we hold sacred. Thank you.
