Man with gun shot dead by McKinney police

McKinney police kill suspect after standoff

McKINNEY — A man with a gun was shot and killed by McKinney police Wednesday night in the parking lot of an apartment complex.

Witnesses said a woman and child had been held against their will by a man in a van at The Cliffs of Eldorado Apartments in the 1300 block of Eldorado Parkway.

"It happened rather quickly," Officer Sabrina Boston told reporters. "The officers were attempting to take him into custody, the struggle ensued, and that's when the suspect produced a handgun and shot at officers."

The officers fired back, killing the unnamed suspect.

"No one was injured other than the deceased suspect," Boston said, adding that the Texas Rangers have been asked to investigate the circumstances of the shooting.
