Officers Shoot, Kill Texas Man Who Held Teen Hostage

COLLEYVILLE (December 27, 2013) A 49-year-old man who was believed to be holding a teenage girl hostage was shot and killed by tactical officers after he burst from a home in Colleyville and pointed a handgun at police, authorities said Friday.

The unidentified man was shot repeatedly Thursday evening.

WFAA-TV in Dallas reported that the man was holding a teenage girl against her will, but police did not immediately confirm the information.

Officers spoke by phone with the man, but he refused to come out, which led tactical officers to surround the home.

He suddenly stepped outside about two hours after the standoff began, pointing the gun at officers, who opened fire.

He was taken by ambulance to a hospital where he died.
