One person is dead after a shooting in McKinney Thursday afternoon involving a McKinney police officer.
Police said they received a 911 call at 2:25 p.m. from a relative of the man who died saying the man was suicidal and armed.
Officers responded to the 4900 block of Redwood Drive, north of the Sam Rayburn Tollway and west of U.S. Highway 75.
The latest news from around North Texas.
Police said officers were communicating with the man for about an hour before the man walked outside, pointed a shotgun at police who then shot and killed him.
"One of the cops was on the phone with the guy and he actually walked up to the mother and said, 'Well, we had him talking but now he's not talking', and then literally like a minute or two later - I can't quite tell - that's when we heard the gunshot," said neighbor Melissa DeBock.
The identity of the officer and the person killed has not yet been released. Police said the person killed was in his 40's.
The Texas Rangers are investigating.
The officers involved are okay.
McKinney police say one officer has been placed on administrative leave, per department policy.
