Police officer shot & killed in north Texas

Richardson Police spokesman Kevin Perlich said police had received reports of a disturbance with shots fired just after 7 p.m. The Dallas Morning News said police announced shortly after midnight that the second person had died. He worked for the police department for more than a dozen years and was the married father of two daughters.

Brandon De McCall, 26, has been arrested and charged with Capital Murder of a Peace Officer or Fireman.

Officers have continued to gather at Medical City Plano, where the officer was taken.

Sherrard is the first to die on duty in the 63-year history of the Richardson department, Spivey said during a news conference. Texas will honor the lost officer with the dignity he deserves.

"I believe an officer was shot in the neck", said a LYFT driver who dropped off her customer at the scene.

Gov. Greg Abbott offered his condolences on Twitter, saying "The hearts and soul of Texas mourn with you".


"This is the hardest day we've ever had. It is an emotionally trying, traumatic day, but they're out there doing the things they do best serving this community".

The victim's condition is unknown, although police said he has not been taken to the hospital for treatment.

Investigators are still at the apartments where the shooting happened.

Police surrounded a building at Breckinridge Point apartment.

Dallas Police Association president Michael Mata posted photos of the damaged vehicle calling the shooter a "coward".
