HARRIS COUNTY, TX. (THECOUNT) — Senior Houston Officer Jerry Flores, who was seriously injured in what was described as a “freak accident” two years ago, died early Thursday.

Flores, who was assigned to the Houston Police Department’s gang division, fell from a golf cart in April 2018 and hit his head on concrete. He was left critically injured and was comatose for more than a week.


Joe Gamaldi, president of the Houston Police Officers’ Union, announced Flores’ death on social media.

“RIP brother you are a legend and will be missed by all,” Gamaldi wrote in the tweet.
