Parole Officer Shot on Rural Road

An East Texas parole officer is recovering after being shot on a rural road.  The assailant is at large. 

It happened about 10:00 a.m. on Van Zandt County Road 2922, that's just off of Highway 19 near the border with Henderson county. 

Van Zandt County Sheriff Pat Burnett says parole officer Katherine Hlavaty was not on official business, and had pulled over to look at a map in her car. That's when one, and perhaps two shots were fired. She was wounded in the leg and the hand. 

The crime scene is in a sparsely populated area, and investigators spent the day collecting evidence.

Hlavaty's wounds were not serious.
