Man fa­tally shot in strug­gle with po­lice

Austin American-Statesman - - COMMUNITY NEWS - Com­piled from wire re­ports.

A 30-year-old man is dead af­ter what po­lice say was a strug­gle with a po­lice of­fi­cer in the park­ing lot of a Dal­las apart­ment com­plex.

Po­lice iden­ti­fied the man as Lenny El­lis. Deputy Chief Gil Garza said of­fi­cers were driv­ing into the park­ing lot when they saw what they con­sid­ered a sus­pi­cious ve­hi­cle.

Garza said the apart­ment com­plex near Dal­las Ex­ec­u­tive Air­port in the south­west­ern part of the city is known for its drug ac­tiv­ity, so the of­fi­cers stopped the car and ap­proached.

The strug­gle en­sued, and an of­fi­cer fear­ing for his life shot El­lis, po­lice said. An­other per­son fled but was later ar­rested. Po­lice have not iden­ti­fied that sus­pect.
