GRAND PRAIRIE (CBSDFW.COM) – Grand Prairie Police were locked in a standoff with an armed suspect who fired shots at officers near a newly-opened IKEA.
“The shots were just ringing out. It sounded like the shots were inside the building,” one IKEA customer told CBS 11 News. “Some people were crying and panicking. One guy even had an asthma attack.”
Some customers even ran and hid inside the store’s basement.
The department later tweeted that the Swedish store wasn’t involved in the incident, and that it actually happened when the suspect pulled into the store’s parking lot.
The suspect died during the standoff.
Police said no IKEA customers were in danger.
