EARLY, Texas -

Thursday was a big day for the Early Police Department.

A celebration was held in Austin Thursday morning for Sergeant Steven Means. Sergeant Means received a Medal of Valor at the Texas state capital for his actions during a shooting that happened back in July of last year.

A dispute between neighbors at the Peach House RV Park left three people dead.

With the help of a citizen, Sergeant Means used about 11 gunshots to take out the suspect.
