Officer's shooting victim identified

Cleburne man in stable condition


A Cleburne man shot during a Monday night traffic stop remains in stable condition at a Fort Worth hospital, Cleburne police said on Tuesday morning.

Police have identified the man as Adam Galvan, 27, and supplied a mug shot from an earlier arrest a couple of years ago.

A Cleburne officer conducted a traffic stop about 5:30 p.m. in the 100 block of Poindexter Street at which time Galvan, a passenger in the vehicle, allegedly displayed a weapon. The officer shot Galvan during a struggle over the weapon, police said. A CareFlite helicopter flew Galvan to Fort Worth. The officer suffered no injuries.

Police said Galvan is “in custody and hospitalized. Police said Galvan has several outstanding warrants including a Johnson County felony warrant for sexual assault of a child; a Parker County felony warrant for smuggling contraband; and several misdemeanor warrants out of Cleburne and Keene.

Investigation into the matter continues and additional charges may be added.

Police have not released the name of the officer involved or the driver of the vehicle. Nor have they released where Galvan was shot or the timeline of events leading to the shooting. 

Cleburne Fire Department reports reveal, according to police officers on scene, that Galvan began fighting with officers, was tased several times, pulled a gun and was shot by an officer.



Police responded to hit-and-run accidents on Friday and Saturday and subsequently located the drivers in both cases.

Police responded at 10:38 p.m. Friday near the intersection of West Williams and Buffalo streets. The driver of a Jeep Cherokee, traveling westbound on West Williams Street, struck a parked and unoccupied Chevrolet Tahoe, continued across the road, struck a phone pole then fled the scene. Police later located the driver who was transported via CareFlite ambulance to Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital with unknown injuries. Police cited the driver for duty upon striking a fixed object.
