Earl Franklin "Andy" Andrews

Constable Andrews was shot and killed after stopping a van that had been involved in a hit-and-run in Lavaca County. When the van stopped, the side door opened and a man exited with a shotgun. Constable Andrews ordered the man to drop the shotgun but the man fired, knocking Constable Andrews to the ground. The man then shot Constable Andrews a second time. The suspect then fired through the windshield of Constable Andrews' car at his wife, who was riding with him, striking her in the arm.

Both suspects were eventually arrested and charged with capital murder.

Constable Andrews was survived by his wife and four children.
