The shooting in Haltom City also left three officers with non-life-threatening gunshot wounds, Sgt. Rick Alexander said during a news conference. The officers were recovering in local hospitals Saturday night.
Police were called to a residence in the 5700 block of Diamond Oaks Drive North on a report of shots fired, Alessandro ha detto.
“It appears our officers did return fire during the incident,” Alessandro ha detto, though the result of those shots was unknown.
One woman was found dead inside the home and a man was found fatally shot in the home’s driveway. An elderly woman who called 911 was shot but expected to survive, Alexander added.
The suspect was found dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound at another location near the home, Alessandro ha detto. There was a military-style rifle and a handgun near his body.
The Texas Rangers will investigate the shooting and will release more details as they become available, Alessandro ha detto.
