On July 11, the Texas Rangers initiated an investigation into the shooting death of Joseph Kevin Greer of Vidor at the request of Police Chief Dave Shows. Because the shooting death involved two Vidor police officers, the Texas Rangers were requested to lead the investigation.

The Texas Rangers conducted a thorough investigation, and the case was submitted to the Orange County District Attorney’s Office and then presented to the Grand Jury early last week.

Once the investigation is submitted to the District Attorney’s office, the Texas Department of Public Safety and the Texas Rangers have no authority over the case from that point forward.  Please contact the District Attorney’s office for more information on any action taken by the Grand Jury or the Orange County District Attorney’s office.
