Baytown police release surveillance photos of vehicle believed to be connected to asst. chief deputy’s murder

BAYTOWN, Texas — Baytown police have released more surveillance footage of a vehicle they believe is connected to the murder of a veteran Harris County deputy.

Asst. Chief Deputy Clinton “Clint” Greenwood was shot and killed Monday outside the Harris County courthouse in Baytown.

Surveillance video showed a dark-colored vehicle fleeing the scene of the shooting, and more footage showed a man walking in the area near the time the Greenwood was shot.

A reward of up to $65,000 is being offered in hopes of finding the shooter.

Precinct 3 Asst. Chief Clint Greenwood had just arrived to work at the Harris County courthouse on W. Baker Road near Garth Road around 7:05 a.m. when he was shot.

Fellow officers rushed to his aid, and Life Flight was called to the scene.

The deputy was airlifted to Memorial Hermann Hospital in the Texas Medical Center for treatment, but he could not be saved.

Police believe the suspect vehicle is a black, 2013-2017 Nisan Versa Note. They are asking business owners and residents to call in to report anything they think they may have seen. They are hoping that security cameras from surrounding businesses captured images that can be used in tracking down the shooter. Anyone with information is asked to cal the Baytown Police Department at 281-422-8371 or Crime Stoppers at 281-427-TIPS.

Greenwood, who had a very impressive career in law enforcement, was laid to rest on Thursday.

Greenwood was appointed Assistant Chief Deputy with the Harris County Precinct Three Constable’s Office on January 1, 2017. He previously served as a major with the Harris County Sheriff’s Office as Commander of the Office of Inspector General, Internal Affairs Division, Legal Services and General Investigations.

Prior to working with the Harris County Sheriff’s Office, Greenwood worked with the Harris County District Attorney’s Office as the division chief of the Police Integrity Division. He supervised the investigations of all officer-involved shootings, allegations of excessive force and general misconduct by police officers occurring in Harris County.

Greenwood started his own highly-successful law practice in 1989 where the focus of his work was defending police officers in criminal matters.

Greenwood gave back to the law enforcement community by being an instructor, having taught at the Houston Police Academy, Harris County Sheriff’s Office Academy, Texas Department of Public Safety Academy and numerous other agencies throughout the United States.
