DUNCANVILLE A man was shot dead in Duncanville following a foot chase with two police officers Monday morning, the department said.

According to a news release issued by the city, police were called to the 400 block of Kelly Court at 8:26 a.m. following a report of a 'major disturbance.' Details are thin, but the release says two officers ended up chasing a male suspect through the neighborhood.

'Preliminary reports indicate that shots were fired during a foot chase,' the release reads.

City spokeswoman Claudia Garibay identified the man as Clinton Peterson, 27. Police are not saying whether he was armed or who fired the fatal shots.

And with that, the Duncanville Police Department is not releasing further information. The Dallas County Sheriff's Department is the lead investigator in the case a spokesperson has not returned requests for comment. Both agencies have been at the location for much of the day.
