HPD Sgt. Sean Rios laid to rest today

HOUSTON, TX – Funeral services for HPD Sergeant Sean Rios took place today at Grace Church in southeast Houston.

Due to COVID-19 protocols, the funeral service was reserved for family, close friends, HPD staff, and those who knew Sgt. Rios.

Rios was fatally shot to death last Monday in a north Houston gun battle. Since then one man has been arrested and charged with Rios’ murder. Police suspect another person of interest may have been involved and is still at large.

Rios was a 25-year veteran of the HPD department and leaves behind four children, his parents, a brother, and two cousins, who are HPD detectives.
