I'm really sorry to learn this. Many thanks to Officer McCoy for his courage in responding to the difficult duty to protect citizens as he did that long-ago day. Thanks, too, for a whole career of protecting citizens. You have certainly earned our respect and affection. I know you'll be missed.
May the Good Lord bless and keep you and your family.

Houston was a fine officer and a true hero in stopping the snipper. He gladly stood in the background and let Martinez get the glory and mentions in articles and made for TV movies. Thank you for your service and may you rest in the heavens peacefully.

I talked to Houston on August 1 of this year.
He will be missed by so many. And to be sure, when you think "Texan" think 'Houston.' His courage, modesty, and good heart are what all of us aspire to.

As someone who was walking in plain sight of the tower that day when the shooting still going on and was not shot, I always appreciated what Officer McCoy did. It was a very tough, unknown situation he walked into. Best wishes to all his family.

To the family of Officer McCoy:
Thank you for sharing your dad with us and I hope that memories of him will comfort you in this time. Your dad saved countless lives and future generations of families on that awful day. Thank you! Thank You! Thank You!

Rest In Peace. Your bravery and modesty will forever be a model for all of us in law enforcement.
