15 Officers Shot Suicidal Dallas-Area Robbery Suspect

December 29, 2009  | 

Fifteen police officers shot at a robbery suspect who was killed Sunday night in Pleasant Grove after he refused to drop a gun and told his mother by phone he wanted to die, police said.

Dontell Mitch Terrell, 19, of Dallas died at Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas shortly after he was shot. It is unclear how many times he was hit, but police said 13 Dallas officers and two Mesquite officers fired at him in the 10000 block of Mesita Drive near North Masters Drive and Lake June Road.

A 16-year-old accomplice of Terrell's also was shot in a separate encounter with a Mesquite police officer. His injuries were not life-threatening, police said. A third man was arrested on suspicion of robbery.

The events that led to the shootings began about 9:15 p.m., when police say three people robbed a Papa John's Pizza in the 1400 block of South Belt Line Road near East Cartwright Road. Investigators believe shots were fired during the robbery, though no one was injured.
