    go pear-shaped on him this morning. Took three rounds -- two to the chest, where a vest saved his life, one to the head; he's now hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries, expected to recover.

    Meanwhile the driver he stopped fled, leading DPS on a 100-mph-plus chase through Wise County and shooting out the car window at the cops. He crashed his Cadillac, a vehicle matching the description of one that fled the scene of a murder of a Colorado state penal official on Tuesday, into an 18-wheeler in Decatur today. The crashed car caught fire. The driver jumped out and fled on foot, shooting at cops as he ran.

    The cops shot back. The driver was hit in the head. He's now in a Ft. Worth hospital on life support for organ harvest. Guy was a 28-year-old ex-prisoner and white-power gang member.

    I heard about this on KCBD NewsChannel 11 in Lubbock at 6 pm tonight.
