Garrett William Nee, 29, faces charges of felony murder, intoxicated manslaughter, and intoxicated assault. He is currently being held on a $1.3 million bond.
Investigators say Nee attempted to run down a police officer and then fled the scene. At one point, the suspect allegedly ran a red light and kept going. Sgt. Baumgartner followed, but was T-boned at the intersection of FM 1485 by a white 1998 Chevy Suburban.
Baumgartner was dead when upon arrival to Memorial Hermann Hospital, in spite of attempts to revive him with CPR.
The 11-year-old, Adan Hilario, Jr., died at the scene. He and his family were on their way home from a Sunday dinner when they were involved in the crash.
Sgt. Baumgartner leaves behind a two-year-old daughter, and an older son. His wife is a 911 dispatcher.
A GoFundme page has been set up for Sgt. Baumgartner. Meantime, the 100 Club says it will help the Baumgartner family with immediate funds to take care of their needs.
