“Carlos Deone High, 37, died during the confrontation Monday near the Ikea store on Mayfield Road. Police had approached High’s vehicle for a welfare check around 1:30 p.m. after a 911 caller reported seeing a man slumped over in the car. When they saw that he had pulled out a rifle, they unholstered their guns and nonlethal weapons and attempted to negotiate for High to put his hands in the air. Grand Prairie Police Chief Steve Dye said Monday that High had fired at officers and, fearing for their lives, they fired back. On Wednesday, police said that “investigators have been unable to locate any evidence the decedent fired his rifle despite initial witness accounts that were immediately shared by Chief Dye.” Evidence from the scene, including video footage, did confirm that High pointed the weapon — which police referred to as an assault rifle — at officers at least three times before the officers used deadly force. Investigators also confirmed that High ignored verbal commands to lower the weapon, police said, and that at least one officer fired a stun gun, which was ineffective because it hit High’s rifle. Authorities are conducting tests to determine whether there was gunshot residue on High’s hands. High’s criminal history included convictions for drug possession, as well as for carrying a weapon in a prohibited place and recklessly discharging a firearm. On April 9, he was arrested on a marijuana charge in Tarrant County.” (398)

“Police on Tuesday fatally shot a man armed with a .45 caliber pistol who was trying to break into rooms at the Embassy Suites hotel in downtown San Antonio, officials said. Hotel staff initially encountered the suspect, a man in his 40s, around 5:15 a.m. in the lobby. He ran to the second floor, then took an elevator to the fifth floor, where he tried unsuccessfully to force his way into a room, police said. Around 6:15 a.m., the San Antonio Police Department’s bike patrol and park police divisions confronted the man on the seventh floor and the situation escalated. San Antonio Police Chief William McManus said it is unclear if the suspect ever raised his weapon or fired at the officers, “but they felt compelled to use deadly force.” McManus said the man didn’t appear to be a guest at the hotel or know anyone staying there.” (399)

“A burglary suspect was shot by an officer following a police chase early Wednesday in Old Colorado City. No officers were injured in the incident, which began as a call for a burglary in progress at O’Brien Typesetting and Printing on the 1000 block of 19th Street. “When officers arrived on scene they made contact with a business owner … and received information that the suspect in the burglary in progress was in an area just outside of the building,” said CSPD spokesperson Lt.

The suspect was hit and transported to a local hospital, where he was pronounced deceased,” Black said.” (402)

“It’s all connected to an early morning report that was issued by [the Norman Police Department],” Texas DPS SSgt. Dan Buesing said. … officers responded at about 7:30 a.m. Thursday to a domestic disturbance call in the 1200 block of 36th Avenue NW. By the time police arrived a woman had been allegedly kidnapped. The reporting party gave officers descriptions of the suspect and a description on the vehicle he was driving. Buesing said at about 8:30 a.m., a Burkburnett police officer saw the vehicle, the driver fled, and a pursuit ensued, The chase continued for about 50 miles on U.S. Highway 287 through Wichita Falls, Iowa Park and Electra. An Electra Police Department officer and Texas DPS Trooper deployed spike strips, or stop sticks, forcing the vehicle to a stop about five miles east of Vernon, Buesing said. According to police, the alleged kidnapping victim and suspect exited the vehicle, and the man started stabbing the female with a large knife.

“The caller told dispatchers that an unknown woman, later identified as , Myra Lisa Micalizio, 56 from Palermo, was trespassing on their property and when asked to leave, she refused and made threats to shoot the residents. … Once on scene, the deputies found Micalizio in the front yard and her vehicle parked in the driveway. Officials said as the deputies approached her, she had her hands behind her back, refusing directions from Deputy Lair to stop and show her hands. Officials added based on the threats to shoot to the residents, the deputies were worried Micalizio was armed with a gun. Micalizio continued to ignore Deputy Lair’s commands to show her hands and then walked to her vehicle and got in the driver’s seat. Officials said she quickly started the vehicle, put it in reverse, and accelerated backwards at a high rate of speed towards Deputy Lair. As the vehicle came close to Deputy Lair, he attempted to move but noted that it appeared Micalizio was steering the vehicle towards him. Fearing he was in danger of being ran over, Deputy Lair fired seven shots from his gun into the vehicle. Officials said at the same time, Deputy Barker, who was standing nearby, fired six shots into the vehicle as she too was concerned that Deputy Lair was in danger of being struck by the vehicle.” (407)
