Richardson Police Officer Killed

Barricaded gunman kills officer, injures 2nd victim near Dallas

It's believed McCall shot Gamez but the investigation is continuing, Plano police spokesman David Tilley said.

The officer was responding to a shooting call about 8 p.m.at an apartment complex near E. Renner and North Star roads when wounded, according to a report by WFAA.

The suspect, who was firing randomly, had barricaded himself inside an apartment leading to a four-hour standoff, CNN affiliate KTVT reported.

Witnesses reported hearing several gunshots coming from inside the complex, while officers kept residents inside their units for their safety.

Officer David Sherrard, 37, an officer with the Richardson Police Department, was fatally shot in an hours-long standoff. The Dallas Morning News said police announced shortly after midnight that the second person had died. When they arrived, the gunman opened fire and hit one officer. He was taken to a local hospital to be treated.

Police have not released the name of the officer who died or the suspect. We're not doing well.

Spivey said he couldn't answer any questions about the suspect or the shooting investigation and referred all questions to Plano police. "Richardson police arrested him in 2016 on a misdemeanor charge of possession of a controlled substance, records showed".

Texas Governor Greg Abbott tweeted out his condolences. "Your loss is a loss to all law enforcement and everyone in our great state".

"It's a sad day for the Richardson Police Department".
