FORT WORTH (AP) - Fort Worth police say a bank robbery suspect fatally shot by an officer didn’t fire his gun after all.

Police initially said the suspect fired first at officers who were chasing him as he ran in a field Tuesday near Lake Arlington.

But on Wednesday police Sgt. Pedro Criado said forensics tests showed that the man didn’t fire any shots from his weapon.

Criado says the man pointed his gun at police, and an officer fearing for his life responded by firing shots.

The man was suspected of holding up a bank earlier Tuesday. Police haven’t released his name.

Authorities haven’t said whether they found a possible second suspect who got out of the man’s car during the police pursuit.
