A man who was shot by Haltom City police officers died Saturday, almost a week after the shooting.

The incident happened around 7:05 p.m. May 24 in the 2300 block of McGuire Avenue, according to Haltom City police.

Officers were responding to reports of shots fired in the area when a man drove up to the scene, Haltom City police Sgt. Eric Peters said.

Peters said the man retrieved something from the trunk of his vehicle, got back into the vehicle and started to drive towards officers.

When the man didn't stop his car, officers fired into the vehicle and struck the man multiple times after four officers discharged their weapons, Peters said.

The man was taken to John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth with life-threatening injuries, police said. No officers were injured.

He was identified as 48-year-old James Franklin Milligan, Jr. by the Tarrant County medical examiner's office.

The Texas Rangers are investigating the shooting.
