DALLAS — An investigation is now underway, after special agents with the Texas Department of Public Safety shot a man who was approaching them with a gun.
According to the DPS, here’s what happened:
“The special agents were parked in a business complex parking lot when a white SUV pulled in behind the special agents and blocked them in,” said Lonny Haschel with the DPS. “The occupant of the white SUV got out with a handgun and approached the agents. The agents fearing for their lives discharged their service weapons striking the suspect.”
That suspect was taken to a nearby hospital. Two others who stayed in the white SUV during the shooting were taken into custody. This all happened in the area of I-635 and Skillman Tuesday morning. The investigation is being led by the Texas Rangers.
