Bryan Matthew Cahill, who police say shot a Department of Public Safety state trooper and engaged in a standoff with officers on March 30 in Frisco, was indicted last week on seven charges.

Officials said Travares Webb, a 12-year veteran of the DPS, attempted to pull 42-year-old Cahill over on northbound Dallas Parkway and Spring Creek Parkway when Cahill fled. Cahill ended up at La Valencia at Starwood Apartments. A video taken by a resident shows the trooper getting shot as he stood next to the drivers side of the Pontiac.

After the trooper was shot, various law enforcement agencies responded to the scene. Witnesses said Cahill fled into his apartment following a shootout with the trooper. Police said Cahill barricaded himself inside the apartment. Officials said at multiple times Cahill shot at officers who were trying to arrest him during the 15-hour standoff.

Cahill was taken into custody around 5:05 a.m. the next day and taken to an area hospital for treatment of serious injuries. Once released, he was taken to the Collin County Jail and charged with aggravated assault on a police officer.

Cahill is facing one charge of aggravated assault against a public servant with a deadly weapon, four counts of aggravated assault against a public servant, one charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and one charge of evading arrest.

He is in Collin County Jail with bond set at $3.05 million. His first court appearance is set for June 14.

Sgt. Lonny Haschel of DPS said Webb continues to recover but added he has a long recovery ahead.

There were multiple agencies involved in this incident including Frisco Police, McKinney Police, Richardson Police, Plano Police, Little Elm Police, the FBI and others.
