Trooper shot in Frisco standoff released from hospital, police say

The Department of Public Safety announced the trooper who was shot in Frisco last week was released from the hospital Friday afternoon.

DPS identified the trooper as Travares Webb, a 12-year veteran with the department. Webb was shot in the leg by a driver he tried to stop last Friday, leading to a 15-hour standoff with the shooting suspect, police have said.

“He remains in good spirits and looks forward to beginning the long recovery process,” DPS spokesman Lonny Haschel said in a statement. “He is VERY grateful for all the well wishes, support and prayers received from the community and law enforcement.”

Webb underwent surgery after being shot at about 2:15 p.m. Friday after he attempted to pull a driver over on the Dallas North Tollway, according to DPS.

Instead of stopping, the driver evaded the trooper and drove into the La Valencia at Starwood Apartments. There, the driver stopped the car, shot Webb and barricaded himself inside his apartment, police said.

Multiple law enforcement agencies surrounded the La Valencia at Starwood Apartments, in the 6800 block of Lebanon Road, looking for the shooter.

Bryan M. Cahill, 42, was taken into custody at about 5:05 a.m. Saturday.

Throughout the standoff, Cahill fired multiple shots at authorities, according to DPS. Cahill suffered serious injuries and was taken to a local hospital. Authorities did not provide any details on how Cahill was injured.

Cahill was booked into the Collin County Jail in McKinney on Sunday and bond was set at $500,000. The Frisco man faces a charge of aggravated assault on a public servant, according to jail records.
