Unhappy Officer Down

Texas police officer killed in park shooting

Texas police officer killed in park shooting
Published March 02, 2016 FoxNews.com

A Texas police officer died Tuesday from an injury sustained in a shooting with an armed suspect near a Dallas-area park.

Euless Police Chief Mike Brown said the suspect also died of multiple gunshot wounds in the shootout, which occurred around 3 p.m. at J.A. Carr Park. According to the New York Post, the officer was identified as David Hofer. Hofer was a former NYPD officer.

Hofer and others encountered the gunman who was shooting erratically at officers. Authorities fired at the suspect and killed him, the Post reported. The suspect’s identity has not been released.

"Upon arrival, officers encountered a suspect with an unknown weapon," Brown said. "The suspect immediately fired upon officers, striking one of them. Officers returned fire, striking the suspect."

Two nearby schools were placed on lockdown until the situation was over.

The officer is the second to die in the line of duty in Euless, a suburb of more than 53,000 residents about 17 miles west of Dallas and 15 miles east of Fort Worth. The other officer who died was Michael Williamson, who was killed by a drunken driver in 1982, according to the city website.

Hofer was engaged and he and his fiancé were in the middle of planning their wedding and their future, Hofer’s mother Sofija Hofer told the paper.

No name or description of the suspect.

If it was a Bobby Lee Jones, that would be front and center

yes there is, it was Jorge Brian Gonzalez. Euless is very Hispanic; I worked near there for years and the city and PD was a customer of ours. It's a horrible shame, that's a good department. Suspect was apparently high on meth.

RIP Officer David Hofer and Prayers to the Officer's family and department.

At least there won't be a public court trial with people blaming this on the officer or on all the police because another upstanding citizen was killed!!

GodSpeed!
