LANCASTER, Texas -- A police officer and two other men, including the son of Dallas' police chief, were killed in shootings at a suburban Dallas apartment complex, authorities said.
The officer was responding to a reported domestic disturbance around 6 p.m. at the apartment complex in Lancaster, just south of Dallas, when the call was upgraded to shots fired, police spokesman Sgt. Derek Clark said. When the officer arrived, an exchange of gunfire erupted and the officer was killed.
The son of Dallas Police Chief David Brown killed a Lancaster police officer and another man during a Sunday melee that left three people dead, according to a law enforcement official.
David Brown Jr., 27, was himself shot and killed by officers, according to the official.
A law enforcement source who is familiar with the case and who asked that he not be identified said Brown had been behaving erratically at the apartment complex where the shootings occurred, in the 900 block of River Bend Drive near West Pleasant Run Road in southern Dallas County.
Wearing boxers, sunglasses and no shoes, Brown apparently killed a man who had just pulled into the complex in his car with his wife and children.
A short time later, he shot and killed Craig Shaw, a five-year veteran of the Lancaster police force who was the first officer called to the scene.
"This community has lost a good officer, a very good officer. We are heartbroken," Lancaster Police Chief Keith Humphrey said.
Shaw, 37, a father of two, was the first Lancaster officer fatally shot in the line of duty.
The other man who was killed was 23-year-old Jeremy Jontae McMillian, according to the Dallas County medical examiner's office.
