An Ar­ling­ton sus­pect killed by of­fi­cers dur­ing an ex­change of gun­fire was sched­uled for a court ap­pear­ance next month on a drug pos­ses­sion charge, ac­cord­ing to Tar­rant County crim­i­nal court records.

Treshun Miller, 20, had a pre­trial hear­ing on Feb. 14 in County Crim­i­nal Court No.7ona pos­ses­sion of mar­i­juana charge which Ar­ling­ton po­lice say oc­curred in Novem­ber, court records showed.

Miller died early Satur­day at a Fort Worth hos­pi­tal from gun­shot wounds he suf­fered from an Ar­ling­ton po­lice of­fi­cer Fri­day night.

He shot an of­fi­cer on Fri­day night while flee­ing dur­ing a traf­fic stop, po­lice said. Of­fi­cers re­turned fire and hit Miller.

Dur­ing the stop, the of­fi­cer smelled mar­i­juana in the car and re­quested a backup of­fi­cer. He asked the driver, Jes­sica Lee Law­son, to get out of the car so he could con­duct a search, po­lice said.

Miller also got out of the car, but sec­onds later he fled. Miller pulled out a 9mm hand­gun, turned and fired

mul­ti­ple rounds at one of two of­fi­cers, hit­ting him in the pelvic area, po­lice said.

The in­jured of­fi­cer re­mained in se­ri­ous con­di­tion Sun­day at a lo­cal hos­pi­tal, po­lice Lt. Christo­pher Cook said Sun­day in a tele­phone in­ter­view.

Miller’s fam­ily mem­bers could not be reached Sun­day for com­ment.

Law­son, the driver of the car that was stopped, and two other men in the back­seat were not charged and de­tec­tives said they were co­op­er­at­ing with the in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

Po­lice said of­fi­cers found 2.05 ounces of mar­i­juana and dig­i­tal scales in the car.

Miller had a crim­i­nal his­tory in Tar­rant County. He pre­vi­ously had been ar­rested twice for drug pos­ses­sion, once for bur­glary and for evad­ing ar­rest, ac­cord­ing to court records.

Miller and Law­son were in­volved in an­other shoot­ing to­gether in Au­gust 2017.

Ac­cord­ing to po­lice, 18-year-old Lon­don Tyrece Lane shot some­one out­side Nord­strom at the Frisco mall and Miller drove Lane and Law­son away from the scene, ac­cord­ing to po­lice at the time. Domingo Ramirez Jr.: 817-390-7763, @min­go­ramirezjr
