Slain Richardson Officer Identified, Suspect Charged After Apartment Shooting

Police responded to a disturbance call Wednesday at an apartment complex in the Dallas suburb.

"It's the hardest day we've ever had", Spivey said.

Police say the shooting sparked a standoff with the suspect, who randomly fired a weapon throughout the night. Witnesses said McCall repeatedly shouted "I'm sorry" as he was being led away. The Dallas Morning News said police announced shortly after midnight that the second person had died.

Last year, a barricaded gunman in Little Elm unleashed a "hail of gunfire" on police Detective Jerry Walker and his fellow SWAT officers.

De McCall was booked into the Collin County jail Thursday morning on a charge of capital murder of a peace officer or fireman.

Officers from Richardson and other North Texas cities assembled at Medical City Plano as they grimly awaited news of the officer's fate.

The suspected gunman who fatally shot Sherrard and a civilian was taken into custody. We're not doing well. The condition of the civilian remained unknown, but Perlich said he had not been transported elsewhere for treatment and was still at the apartment complex.

Dallas Police Association president Michael Mata posted photos of the damaged vehicle calling the shooter a "coward".

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott posted the following message on Twitter, along with other law enforcement agencies following suit.

"It's a sad day for the Richardson Police Department". At this point, Plano detectives are still building the case to piece together the timeline and details of the events.
