Authorities in Central Texas have identified a 28-year-old man they are accusing of killing a sheriff's deputy serving a warrant.

The Burleson County Sheriff's Office on Friday said that Henry Goedrich Magee has been arrested on suspicion of capital murder of a peace officer in the death of Sgt. Adam Sowders.

Authorities say Sowders was part of a team of deputies at a rural home east of Somerville, about 90 miles northwest of Houston. Gunfire rang out shortly after the deputies entered the home just before 6 a.m. Thursday.

Magee is being held on $1 million bond, pending his indictment.

A person who answered the phone at Magee's residence Friday declined to comment or say if Magee had an attorney.
