[Excerpts] 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... David Brown Jr., 27, was himself shot and killed by officers... Brown had been behaving erratically at the apartment complex where the shootings occurred... After shooting [innocent bystander Jeremy] McMillian, Brown stalked back and forth to his apartment at least twice, the law enforcement source said. Brown eventually retrieved a rifle from the trunk of a Dodge Stratus, then got into the Stratus. As sirens began to sound with the approach of police, and as bystanders were yelling and screaming, he backed the car out and began to leave the apartment complex. Shaw, the first officer there, tried to stop [the] Stratus after witnesses told him the shooter was driving away... Brown then stopped, got out of his car, and fired at the officer's car. Shaw returned fire, firing many rounds. It is not clear if Brown was hit at that point... Brown then got back in the car and began firing again from inside the vehicle. Shaw was hit in the head. Other officers, who by then had arrived on the scene, returned fire, striking the Brown repeatedly. He died at the scene... Another officer returned fire at the suspect and shot and killed him." ...
