Members of the Lubbock County Sheriff's Department drove three hours late last night in order to get there and help.
Sheriff Rowe called this terrible.
Something friends, family and the entire Reagan County Sheriff's office will remember forever.
He said when he found out about the incident, he and his team got together and sent a crew to Big
Lake because they wanted to do whatever they could to help.
Fifteen members of the Lubbock County Sheriff's SWAT tactical team hit the road at around midnight.
According to reports the incident started when Reagan County Sheriff's Deputy Josh Mitchell went to a home to serve a warrant.
He was then shot and later died at an area hospital.
The suspect, 43- year- old Marcus Madison then barricaded himself inside a home for about 17 hours.
He was arrested around 11:40 this morning and is now in custody.
There was reportedly a stockpile of weapons in the home.
Sheriff Rowe said the Reagan County Sheriff was devastated after the shooting.
He had known Deputy Mitchell for years.
"In West Texas we've all got to work together and there's a lot of rural communities out there that just don't have the type of assets and resources that we do. We're all working towards the same mission and its important to keep at the forefront of this-- our fallen officer from down there, his family, his wife," Sheriff Rowe said.
Mitchell was just 26 years old.
