(ABC NEWS) A deputy constable is expected to recover after undergoing several hours of surgery after he was shot four times while talking to another constable after a traffic stop, authorities said Thursday.

Harris County Deputy Constable Alden Clopton was wearing a protective vest when he was shot at from behind about 11:20 p.m. Wednesday, Constable May Walker said during a Thursday morning news conference.

Asked if authorities believed the shooter was targeting law enforcement, Houston police spokesman Kese Smith told The Associated Press that both deputy constables were in uniform and had marked vehicles.
