BELTON, Texas (AP) - In a story Dec. 16 about the shooting of a Texas police chief, The Associated Press erroneously substituted the chief’s name for that of the man accused of shooting him. Marlin police Chief Darrell Allen was the person who died, and Derrick Wayne Gamble was charged with capital murder in his death.

A corrected version of the story is below:

Man could face death penalty for Texas police chief’s death

Man charged with capital murder, could face death penalty for Texas police chief’s death

BELTON, Texas (AP) - The man accused of killing the police chief in the Texas town of Marlin now faces a capital murder charge.

The Temple Daily Telegram reports (https://bit.ly/1TQTnKi) that Derrick Wayne Gamble was indicted Wednesday for capital murder. Gamble was arrested and charged with murder after the shooting of Darrell Allen.

Allen was working security at a bar in nearby Temple where authorities say he tried to detain Gamble.

Bell County District Attorney Henry Garza said he hasn’t decided yet whether to pursue the death penalty.

Gamble remains held on $1.75 million bond.
