Deputy J. Bulman.

SUGAR LAND (Covering Fort Bend News) – The Fort Bend County deputy that was shot after responding to a domestic disturbance early this morning has been identified as Deputy J. Bulman. Bulman has been with the Sheriff’s Office for seven years.

At 4:26 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 9, the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office Dispatch received a 911 call from a woman who said a man had a gun and was trying to kill her.

The woman is the mother of his child and they share custody. Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to the 3700 block of Lakeridge Canyon Drive in the Sugar Land area.

Upon arrival, Deputy Bulman was shot in the calf and his chin was grazed twice. Another responding deputy applied a tourniquet and Deputy Bulman was transported to a nearby hospital. SWAT was deployed to the residence where the suspect lived with his parents.

The suspect’s mother, father, two-year-old son, and mother of the child all made it out of the residence safely.

The suspect, Serik Olivares, 41, died from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The case remains under investigation.

“What a terribly sad situation,” said Sheriff Troy Nehls. “I am grateful that the suspect’s family is safe and unharmed and that our deputy is going to make a full recovery.”
