Dallas police fatally shoot man at Far North Dallas hotel

Police fatally shot a suspect late Wednesday outside a hotel near Coit Road and Interstate 635 in Far North Dallas.

No officers were wounded.

Dallas police Lt. Jose Garcia said more details would be forthcoming, but so far officers had not confirmed the circumstances of the shooting in the parking lot of the Grand Hotel Dallas.

Witnesses said the male suspect had been acting erratically before police ordered him to get out of a pickup.

The shooting came the same night protesters rallied in downtown Dallas to show solidarity with residents of Ferguson, Mo., in the wake of the fatal shooting of an unarmed teenager there.

About 200 people gathered peacefully for the Don’t Shoot Dallas rally at Main Street Garden between Harwood and St. Paul streets.

The protesters, who carried signs and chanted “No justice, no peace,” marched through downtown to Victory Plaza outside American Airlines Center.

Wednesday night’s shooting by Dallas police was the third in two weeks.

On Aug. 10, an officer fatally shot 26-year-old Andrew Scott Gaynier, who reportedly was unarmed.

Police said an off-duty officer on neighborhood patrol shot Gaynier when he moved in “a manner perceived to be dangerous to the officer” after trying to force his way into a passing vehicle in north Oak Cliff.

The officer was identified as Senior Cpl. Antonio Hudson, a seven-year department veteran.

The next day, Senior Cpl. Kevin Gladden fatally shot Jose Manuel Gonzalez, 18, who police say was armed with knives.

Police said Gonzalez had assaulted his mother, grandmother and father in a northwest Dallas home, and threatened to stab his father.

When police arrived, Gonzalez approached Gladden, an eight-year veteran of the department, with his hands behind his back. Witnesses told Gladden that Gonzalez was holding two knives.

Gladden told him to drop the knives and show his hands, police said. He refused and began walking toward the officer, who retreated about three houses away. When Gonzalez pulled a knife out, Gladden shot him.

Neither officer in the earlier shootings was injured.
