A man who attacked two police officers and several homeowners in a residential neighborhood Saturday night was reportedly running up and down the street “making growling sounds” before he was fatally shot by police, Saginaw, TX, police spokesman Sgt. Damon Ing said Sunday.
The man, identified as Michael Brown, 25, died of a gunshot wound to the chest, according to the Tarrant County medical examiner’s website Sunday.
Ing told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram the officers have Tasers, but he is not sure whether they had time to use them.
Both officers were taken to a hospital for treatment, and released by Sunday, Ing said. He is not sure when they will be back to work. One officer is on administrative leave, normal procedure as police investigate the shooting.
