POLICE KILL SUSPECT….Crowd Reacts” class=”size-full wp-image-362″ />
The shooting happened at about 5:30 p.m. at a known drug house in the 5300 block of Bourquin Street, FOX 4 News reported.
Police said the unidentified suspect shot at officers, who returned fire, killing the man. Another suspect fled and was later arrested, police said.
No officers were injured, police said.
However, a crowd of hundreds gathered at the scene, prompting to police to call for additional crowd control support, both by ground and by air.
In fact, officers armed with pepper ball guns and shields forced the crowd back amid reports of people trying to cut through fences to gain access to the shooting scene.
FOX 4 News reported that, according to initial reports, the slain man’s inconsolable mother confronted police at the scene and refused to leave.
A chaotic fight also briefly broke out between some in the crowd.
Meanwhile, the body of the slain suspect remained at the shooting scene and was being guarded by police.
By about 6:30 p.m. the volatile crowd shrank a bit and divided into smaller groups as Dallas police announced its SWAT team was being deployed to the still potentially explosive situation. But citizens quickly began re-gathering.
Dallas City Councilman Dwaine Caraway was headed to the standoff aiming to help police calm the situation.
