Man who police say ran over, injured officer outside Dallas nightclub is in the US illegally


DALLAS — Immigration officials say the man who ran over and injured an off-duty officer before being shot by police outside a Dallas nightclub early Monday is in the country illegally.

Twenty-nine-year-old Eduardo Gonzalez-Rios has been charged with three counts of aggravated assault against a public servant.

Police say Sr. Corporal Ed Lujan suffered numerous broken bones and a lacerated scalp after Gonzalez-Rios ran over him twice outside the Kalua Discotheque.

Police say the incident prompted Sgt. Shannon Browning and Sr. Corporal Antonio Barrientos to fire at Gonzalez-Rios. Gonzalez-Rios was wounded in the arm and released from the hospital Tuesday. He is being being detained on immigration hold in the Dallas County jail.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesman Carl Rusnok says Gonzalez-Rios has been deported from the U.S. three times.
