Officer Involved Shooting in 7400 block of Chesterfield Drive

On Sunday, July 3, 2016, at approximately 11:30 p.m., Dallas police officers responded to a call regarding a Disturbance Armed Encounter on Foot in the 7400 block of Chesterfield Drive.  Once officers arrived, they began walking through the apartment courtyard when they came across a group of individuals.  Officers observed one of the individuals carrying a shotgun. As the officer announced their presence the individual put the shotgun in his car. The suspect then turned and walked away, at which point he drew a handgun from his waistband, turned, and pointed the weapon at the officer. The officer fired his weapon at that point. The suspect fled on foot and was located a short distance away from the offense location armed with a handgun. Neither the officer or the suspect were injured.

A shotgun and one handgun were recovered at the original offense location. This is an active investigation; more information will be released as it become available and when it is appropriate to do so.
