Man fatally shot in struggle with police
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.
