Atlanta, GA — A man wanted in Georgia on charges of sexually assaulting a child and enticing a child is dead, shot down by police in Texas.
Fort Worth police were assisting the U.S. Marshals Task Force in hunting the suspect. They tracked him to a house in the 2000 block of Williams Place, near Northeast 28th Street in Fort Worth.
The man barricaded himself inside the home and a standoff began. The SWAT team arrived and tried negotiating with the man, but to no avail.
Then, after several hours holed up inside, the suspect emerged from a back door, holding a handgun. Officers say the man shouted to them, "I'm not going back to prison," then leveled the gun at them and fired twice.
He missed. They did not.
Officers returned fire, hitting the suspect several times. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
The matter is still being investigated by police in Fort Worth. The suspect's name has not been released. ..Source.. by Jon Lewis
