Constable Dale Geddie Killed, Deputy and Suspect Shot After Domestic Violence Call

Smith County Precinct 4 Constable Dale Geddie has been shot and killed following police response to a domestic violence call north of Tyler.  Another deputy for the Smith County Sheriff's Department, Daniel Leon is in surgery with a gunshot wound.

The shootings happened on Pine Springs Road and County Road 3121, that's just off of 271 North around 11 a.m. when officers responded to a domestic violence call.  The shooter has been identified as 52-year-old Joseph Walsh, who was shot by an officer following a three-hour standoff at the home.

A standoff lasting for close to three hours brought dozens of law enforcement and area residents to a staging area nearby.  It was apparent negotiators had been attempting contact or discussions with Walsh.  However, around 1:30 p.m. a single gunshot rang out and officers began moving in to declare the scene clear.
