Joshua Lee Clouse

Sergeant Josh Clouse was shot and killed by a subject in the 500 block of E 7th Street as he and other officers executed a search warrant.

The subject inside of the home was wanted for shooting his wife during a domestic violence incident earlier in the night. The wounded woman was able to walk to a neighbor's home and call the police. Responding officers secured the subject's residence and obtained a search warrant to take him into custody.

As officers with the Cameron Police Department and several neighboring agencies attempted to execute the warrant, the man opened fire, fatally wounding Sergeant Clouse. Other officers returned fire and killed the subject.

Sergeant Clouse was a U.S. Army veteran and previously served with the Milam County Sheriff's Department. He is survived by his wife and two children.

Reading sergeant J. Clouse Officer Down report as shown a inside of what is going on in the community and how we can help those in need and stop all the hate and violence that we are facing. the officers who are willing to help those in need have to sacrifice themselves to do the greater good and that we need to recognize them more often for what they are doing for the community. reading his report has given me a inside that this officer was willing to help those who were in trouble and was always in the front line doing his best in his line of duty. prayers go out to the family of this officer.
