Simons said that one of Renault’s officers was wounded in the arm and a deputy Parker was injured in the district. The officer’s injuries were not considered life threatening, but the extent of the deputy’s injuries was unknown. The attorney was transferred to a hospital in Fort Worth for treatment.
Simmons said that a bullet hit the portfolio of a Thunderbolt officer of a Renault officer, which prevented him from getting injured.
The newspaper reported that the fiery battle ended when a fire broke out inside the house. A woman who came from inside the house said that the man, who was her son, had shot another woman inside, according to the KDFW.
Flames were seen rising from the house as the suspect immunized himself, according to the Star-Telegraph newspaper. The fire was extinguished at about 1:30 am, but it was not immediately clear what the shooter’s status was.
