MCKINNEY (CBSDFW.COM) – Shots rang out late Wednesday night at a Collin County apartment complex. The incident ended with police officers shooting and killing an armed suspect.

While there was a lot of commotion last night, things were quiet Thursday morning at the Cliffs of Eldorado Apartments.

Police were alerted when a woman called 911 and said she and a child were stuck in a van. She claimed a man was holding them against their will.
