A Fort Worth police officer shot a robbery suspect early
Thursday morning who allegedly charged at another officer with a pry bar.
Police responded to a burglary call at the Riverwind
Apartments in the 2800 block of Westwind Circle about 2:30 a.m. on Thursday.
They came across a suspect when they arrived who, police said, raised a pry bar
when he saw officers and charged at an officer.
Police said a second officer, concerned for the safety of
the other officer, fired his weapon and hit the suspect.
The suspect was taken to a local hospital in unknown
condition. The two officers involved were not injured.
An investigation is underway into the incident, which is
normal protocol for officer-involved shootings.
