There are two ways to help BCSO Lieutenant Scott Lillis and his family on his journey to recovery and healing. Tragically, Lieutenant Lillis was injured in the line of duty over the weekend. We have complete details to follow.
Please help support the family of BCSO Lieutenant Scott Lillis. Lieutenant Lillis was attempting to pull over what he thought was a possible DWI driver. As Lt. Lillis approached the passenger side of the vehicle the driver fired a shot hitting Lt. Lillis once in the face. The driver was wanted for a murder which occurred earlier in the day in Hooks, Texas. He fled the scene after shooting Lt. Lillis. Lt. Lillis was found by a Texas DPS Trooper laying on the ground and was airlifted to Little Rock Arkansas Hospital. We were last updated that he will lose his left eye and possibly be blind in his right eye.
Lieutenant Lillis has proudly served his nation and in the community, from being an United States Marine, to a Texarkana Texas Police Officer and to a Lieutenant with the Bowie County Sheriff’s Office.
The Texarkana On The Border is giving back 20% of sales to the Lillis family on August 18th.
