A Logan County deputy injured earlier in the week in a shooting incident has been released from a hospital and complaints filed against the suspects have been amended, a spokesman said.
Logan County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Richard Stephens said Deputy Daniel Fulton was injured during the incident and he was treated and released from a local hospital on the same day.
“He was treated for glass and metal fragments from the impact of the bullet and the windshield of the patrol vehicle,” Stephens said. “The deputy has returned to work, and is doing fine.”
At about 9:30 p.m. Sunday, a deputy was driving west from Broadway on Seward Road on the way to a call of livestock out of their fences, Stephens said in a previous report.
Stephens said as the deputy was approaching the Cottonwood Creek bridge, a person who was on the roadway shot a firearm at the vehicle, striking it in the driver’s side of the front windshield.
Initially, the Logan County Sheriff’s Office reported the deputy was not injured.
Several suspects fled the area, Stephens said. As the suspect vehicle traveled over the train tracks toward Broadway, it lost control, rolled and came to rest in a yard near Railroad Avenue and Seward, Stephens said.
Three suspects injured in the collision were taken into custody, Stephens said. Shortly after the investigation began, two additional suspects who had fled the crashed vehicle were taken into custody, Stephens said.
Stephens said as the investigation moved forward the complaints were amended. On Wednesday, the Logan County District Attorney’s Office filed formal charges against four of the suspects who appeared in court:
• Carl Dean Gallian, 47, a Logan County resident, remains hospitalized with a neck injury sustained in the rollover crash resulting from the alleged attempt to elude deputies. Charges are still pending;
• Christian Wade Gallian, 19, a Logan County resident, remains incarcerated in the Logan County Jail on complaints of use of a motor vehicle to facilitate the discharge of a firearm, malicious injury to property, possession of firearms while intoxicated and obstructing an officer. He has not yet entered a plea, according to online court records. His bond was set at $250,000. His case has been set on the June 26 preliminary hearing docket;
• Albert Dean Holcomb, 24, of Gilmer, Texas, was arrested on a misdemeanor obstructing an officer complaint. He entered a plea of not guilty. He has been released on $1,000 bond. In Logan County court records, his middle name is listed as Glenn. His case has been set for the June 12 pre-trial docket;
• Andrew John Duncomb, 19, of Seminole, was arrested on a misdemeanor obstructing an officer complaint. He has been released on $1,000 bond. He entered a plea of not guilty. His case has been set for the June 12 pre-trial docket; and
• Allen Josiah Valentine, 19, of Tonkawa, was arrested on a misdemeanor obstructing an officer complaint. He has been released on $1,000 bond. He entered a plea of not guilty. His case has been set for the June 12 pre-trial docket.
