FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - A 29-year-old man has been shot and killed by Fort Worth police after authorities said he fired at police cars responding to reports of a man firing a weapon.
Christopher Johnson was identified Sunday night as the man shot by officers after screaming at them he was combat trained and ran from his house holding a gun to his head. When he refused officers' commands to drop his weapon and continued running toward police, he was shot.
Neighbors described the shooting to The Fort Worth Star-Telegram as like a scene from a movie. They also characterized Johnson as a troubled veteran of the Iraq war.
