Greenwood was ambushed in the back parking lot of the courthouse on the 700 block of West Baker just after 7 a.m. Monday. He was hit in the neck. Investigators said Greenwood was shot in the neck and radioed for help, reportedly saying "I'm bleeding out."

A blue line flag was placed outside the courthouse this morning by an employee where Greenwood was shot.

"It's a flag that unites all of us in law enforcement, as Americans, as members of the law enforcement community it reminds us to stay united, one fight," Pct. 3 Chief Clerk Jill Harrison said.

Harrison said staff and all those who work at the courthouse are still trying to cope with the violence that happened in their parking lot early Monday morning.

"It's surreal. Clint was first one here every morning, usually bringing breakfast, but we have a job to do and we would not be doing right by Clint if we did not get in there and do our jobs," Harrison said.

Baytown police officers stopped vehicles arriving at the courthouse, asking them if they had seen anything or anyone before the shooting.
