Henderson is suspected of killing Nassau Bay Police Sgt. Kaila Sullivan during a traffic stop on Tuesday.
Sullivan was killed while assisting with a traffic stop. Henderson, who was wanted on a domestic violence warrant, broke free from being handcuffed, fled from the traffic stop and struck Sullivan with his vehicle, according to an Associated Press report.
Henderson then drove off, striking Sullivan, who later died at a hospital. Henderson's vehicle was later discovered abandoned.
Sullivan, 43, was approaching her 16-year anniversary with the Nassau Bay Police Department and had worked on the night shift. Nassau Bay is located about 25 miles southeast of Houston and has about 4,000 residents.
