Police responded to an 911 call from an elderly woman after reports of gunshots at an apartment building.

Officers in tactical gear from multiple departments responded to the scene and began searching for the suspect when two victims, including a man and a woman, were found inside.

The person who called 911 was not critically injured

Three officers also reportedly suffered non-life-threatening injuries after the suspect shot them when he was found nearly a mile away.

The suspect, who was described as a white man with dark hair wearing a blue shirt, blue trousers and a “battle belt”, is now dead.

Police say he had a military-style handgun nearby when he died from a self-inflicted wound.

It is not yet known if the shooter had a relationship with the two victims.

In a statement at a briefing last night, Haltom City Police Department’s Sgt. Rick Alexander said: “The primary concern is to secure the crime scene, try to get to our officers, get them out of harm’s way and try at the same time to contain the suspect.”

At the time, the Haltom City Police Department and the Fort Worth Office of Emergency Management issued a warning to residents in the area to stay indoors and seek shelter.

The Texas Rangers have now launched a formal investigation into the tragic incident.
