Texas Amber Alert suspect stopped in Garland

Posted: Updated:

A missing two-year-old boy that prompted an Amber Alert out of Central Texas was found safe Friday afternoon in Garland.

Police said Vincent Corson, 30, shot his wife at their apartment in Temple and then drove off with their son, Isaiah Corson. Corson's wife had a protective order against him.

Corson is being held at the Lew Sterrett Justice Center in Dallas on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. There is also a hold on him out of Bell County.

The wife was hit in the arm and the hip and was taken to a hospital for treatment.

Corson fled in a maroon 2007 Mazda 6 sedan with the license plate CCS-2279 about 11 a.m., according to authorities, and an Amber Alert was issued.

Dallas police said a patrol sergeant got the Amber Alert on his cell phone officer and shortly after spotted a car matching that description.

The sergeant called in and a helicopter and undercover units were sent to the area where the car was spotted.

Dallas police eventually stopped the car on Interstate 30 at Gus Thomasson around 1 p.m. Police believe the large show of force is why Corson surrendered without incident.

"I think this is a great example of good investigative police work coming together with technology for a safe resolution to a dangerous situation," said Lt. Max Geron with the Dallas Police Department.

The child was also recovered safely and is currently being cared for at the Dallas Child Advocacy Center, police said.
