SWAT officer fatally shoots man after standoff in Fort Worth
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Police in Fort Worth say an officer fatally shot a man who had opened fire on police and had held several people, including children, hostage in an apartment.
Fort Worth police say officers responded to the apartment Thursday after a woman called 911 for help. Once there, police say a man began firing on the officers from a third-floor apartment.
The responding officers had bullet-resistant gear and none were hurt, though one officer’s shield was struck by gunfire.
Police say a SWAT officer opened fire on the man, killing him.
Police did not release any names but described the man as a “young adult.”
