A man was fatally shot by Dallas police after he opened fire on them during a disturbance call early Wednesday morning.
Around 5:30 a.m. officers responded to an armed encounter call on the 10300 block of Shiloh Road in Dallas.
Officers Jacob Rozenburg, Brandy Walling and Otilo Valdez-Sanchez Jr. responded to the call and found the suspect, 64-year-old Darrell Hibbard, in the yard holding a handgun.
Authorities asked Hibbard to drop his weapon multiple times but instead he pointed it at officers and opened fire.
Officers immediately began to return fire and Hibbard was struck multiple times. They performed medical treatment and he was transported to an area hospital where he died from his injuries.
During the investigation officers found several rifles on the man’s porch.
Although all three officers fired their department issued weapon none of them were injured. Two of the officers patrol cars were also struck in the crossfire.
