COLLEYVILLE (CBSDFW.COM) – Police in Colleyville say a man believed to be holding his teenage daughter hostage has been shot and killed after pointing a gun at officers.

Crime scene investigators worked throughout the night at the scene, trying to determine exactly what led to the death of a 49-year-old man.

Colleyville Police say they received a call around 9:30 p.m. Thursday saying that a man on Lexington Parkway had a gun and a possible hostage — his 18-year-old daughter.

Colleyville Police communicated with the suspect over the phone, but say he was armed with a handgun and refused to cooperate.

A regional SWAT unit was called in to assist. Just as a North Richland Hills SWAT unit was establishing a perimeter, the suspect exited the house through the front door and pointed his handgun at officers.

Officers fired at the suspect, striking him multiple times. He was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

Colleyville Police say they’re are familiar with the suspect, having dealt with him on a number of occasions.

Russell Clay, who is housesitting next door, was surprised to hear something like this could happen in the otherwise quiet neighborhood.

“For this to happen in this neighborhood, that’s crazy,” said Clay. “I mean, because we know people down the street, everybody here’s always been nice, real kind. For something like that to happen around here blows my mind.”

Authorities say the 18-year-old was not injured.

The Tarrant County Sheriff’s Office and Texas Rangers are assisting Colleyville Police in the investigation to determine what prompted the shooting.
