A Texas Department of Public Safety investigator was shot Monday night while helping to serve a bank robbery arrest warrant at an east Oak Cliff apartment on a man who was later found dead inside, authorities said.
The DPS investigator and a Dallas police officer who was also wounded were not believed to have life-threatening injuries, officials said. It was unclear early Tuesday whether the deceased suspect, believed to be 55, was shot by officers or had shot himself, authorities said.
An FBI spokesman said the agency’s violent crime task force was serving an arrest warrant at the apartment complex in the 2100 block of 52nd Street near Lancaster Road about 9:50 p.m. Upon entering the apartment, they were shot at and returned fire, FBI Special Agent Mark White said.
