Suspect dead after Texas fatal shooting
In Haltom City, Texas, on Saturday night, two persons were shot and murdered while four others, including three police officers, were injured, according to the police.
During a briefing, Haltom City police Sgt. Rick Alexander stated that although one officer was struck in the right arm, finger, and leg
a second male cop was struck in both legs, and a third officer was struck in the upper thigh, none of the injuries were life-threatening.
After receiving a 911 call from an elderly woman, police were dispatched to the home, where they opened fire, according to Alexander. The elderly woman's wounds are not life-threatening.
According to Alexander, a man and a woman were discovered dead outside and inside, respectively.
According to authorities, the alleged shooter was a white male with black hair who was discovered dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound and who had a military-style rifle handgun close by.
The relationship between the victims and the perpetrator is still unknown. According to Alexander, who spoke to WFAA, "the biggest concern is getting the area secure
attempting to get to our officers, be able to get them out of harm's way while simultaneously trying to keep containment on the subject."
The inquiry will be handled by the Texas Rangers.
