A deputy constable who was critically wounded in a shootout has been upgraded to serious condition.Corporal Harry Thielpape, II, was working an off-duty security job at a north Harris County apartment two weeks ago. He had arrested Jesus Reyna, and placed him in the backseat of his unmarked patrol car, when Reyna grabbed the deputy's gun, and shot him.

Thielepape managed to shoot and kill Reyna.

Thielpape's son says he hasn't seen a noticeable change in his father's condition. But doctors tell us the deputy has stabilized and will undergo more surgeries.
