Police Shoot, Kill Texas Man Suspected Of Abducting His Children

DALLAS (August 26, 2014) Dallas police say an officer shot and killed a 29-year-old man accused of abducting his two young children after ramming their mother's car.

The episode began Monday morning when the mother took her three children to her apartment and found a pickup truck owned by her ex, Steven Douglas, parked outside.

A police statement says Douglas began chasing the car in his truck until he rammed the woman's car, forced it to a stop, grabbed a 9-year-old girl and 1-year-old boy at gunpoint and drove off.

Officers spotted and pursued the green truck until it crashed with another vehicle.

Douglas ran to an auto repair service bay.

There the police statement says he pointed a handgun at a police officer, who shot Douglas to death.

No other injuries were reported.
