Ken DeFoor, a sheriff’s spokesman.Two others were shot; their conditions are unknown. A deputy followed the suspect, and gunshots were exchanged as the suspect pulled into a veterinary clinic parking lot down the road, DeFoor said. The deputy was shot in the neck and was airlifted to a hospital in Houston in stable condition, the spokesman said.Authorities have identified the suspect as Pavol Vido.Read MoreDeputies are searching for Vido, who is driving a 2004 white Mercury vehicle, DeFoor said. It’s unknown if the suspect and the shooting victims knew each other. Vido appears to have been living in a structure behind the plumbing business, according to DeFoor. He was in the process of being evicted, but it’s unknown whether that played a role in the shooting, the spokesman said. Cleveland is about 45 miles northeast of Houston.
