Man, 26, Charged After Fatal Richardson Police Shooting

A 26-year-old man faces a charge of capital murder of a peace officer hours after a deadly shooting incident left a civilian and a Richardson police officer dead Wednesday night, authorities say.

Brandon McCall is charged with capital murder of a peace officer following the shooting and standoff at the Breckinridge Point Apartment Homes.

Police said the apartment resident, Rene Gamez, knew the suspect and was also killed in the shooting.

The shooting suspect surrendered to police after an hourslong standoff and could be heard yelling, "I'm sorry," as he was carried to an ambulance.

As of this writing, McCall has not yet been charged with Gamez's death.

McCall's criminal history includes a number of arrests for possession of small amounts of marijuana.
