DALLAS — The two surviving suspects in the Friday shooting of a Fort Worth undercover police officer now face charges of capital murder, police said Saturday.

Garrett Hull, a 17-year veteran described as the “cement” of his robbery unit, died Friday night after being shot early Friday morning as he tried to apprehend three robbery suspects.

Police shot and killed Dacion Steptoe, 23, during the incident. He died in the driveway of a house in the 3500 block of May Street, about a block away from the Los Vaqueros bar he and two other suspects robbed, according to the Tarrant County medical examiner and police.

Neither of the suspects who survived, 23-year-old Samuel Mayfield and 33-year-old Timothy Huff, are believed to have fired a weapon during the confrontation, police said.

Fitzgerald said Mayfield had active warrants for assault with bodily injury, possession of marijuana and theft when he was arrested.

Mayfield also faces charges of 10 counts of aggravated robbery, because there were 10 patrons in the bar, and one count of attempted capital murder, because another officer was near Hull when Steptoe opened fire, police said.

Huff is also facing 10 counts of aggravated robbery and one count of attempted capital murder.

Jail records did not indicate where the suspects were from or whether bond has been set.

“We’ve lost a true hero, someone that has dedicated more than one tour of service to this great city and was senselessly killed by three known criminals, two of which are in custody now,” Police Chief Joel Fitzgerald said in a press conference late Friday night.
