FORT WORTH, Texas - (AP) A Texas Sheriff says one of his deputies has died after being shot by a man later killed by police.
Hood County Sheriff Roger Deeds said Saturday that Sgt. Lance McLean died at a hospital in Fort Worth.
The Texas Department of Public Safety said Friday McLean was shot in the head by 49-year-old Ricky Don McCommas when he responded to a disturbance call at a home near Granbury. McCommas fled into town where he shot Granbury police Officer Chad Davis in the arm. Officers fatally shot McCommas.
Johnson County court records indicate McCommas was indicted in April for sexual assault of a child. A warrant was issued for his arrest when he failed to appear in court Friday.
