Dallas police shot and killed an armed man in Casa View early Wednesday morning.
Police say three officers responded to calls about a man shooting at vehicles on Shiloh Road near Ruth Ann Drive around 5:30 a.m. Wednesday. That's where they confronted 64-year-old Darrell Hibbard, according to Dallas police.
DPD officials said one of the officers, Brandy Walling, gave "at least 30 verbal commands" for Hibbard to drop the gun before the man opened fire, hitting two squad cars in the process.
All three officers fired back, hitting Hibbard. He was taken to a local hospital, where police say he later died.
Body camera footage released by DPD Thursday showed a nearly 20-second exchange of gunfire. No officers were injured.
Both the Dallas Country District Attorney’s Office and the Office of Community Police Oversight were notified of the shooting, and the investigation is ongoing, Garcia said.
