Suspect in killing of deputy due in court Monday

The man charged with capital murder in the fatal shooting of a uniformed suburban Houston sheriff’s deputy will be arraigned this week.
    
Online jail records show that 30-year-old Shannon J. Miles is due in court Monday. Court and jail records did not list an attorney for Miles.
    
Miles is accused of ambushing Harris County Sheriff’s Deputy Darren Goforth on Friday at a gas station.
    
Authorities believe it was a targeted killing, but said they have no information from Miles that would shed light on a motive.
    
The killing evoked strong emotions in the local law enforcement community, with Sheriff Ron Hickman linking it to heightened tension over the treatment of African-Americans by police. Goforth was white and Miles is black.
    
A vigil was held Saturday night at the gas station.
