Man Fatally Shot By Arlington Police Officer at Local Park Sunday

ARLINGTON (WBAP/KLIF News ) – Arlington police are investigating a fatal officer-involved shooting at F.J. “Red” Kane Park Sunday night.

Officers responded to the park in the 6500 block of Cooper Street just after 10:30 p.m. on a call about a domestic disturbance between a man and a woman.

During a Monday morning press conference, Sergeant Alex Rosado said things took a turn for the worse between the estranged couple as soon as officers arrived.

“As officers were pulling up to the parking lot and exiting their patrol vehicles, the man displayed a handgun and fired multiple shots, striking the woman. The officers then immediately fired their service weapon, striking the man,” he said.

Officers provided first aid to the woman and Boyd until paramedics arrived and took both to nearby hospitals.

The Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office identified the man as 42-year-old Shannon Boyd of Irving. The 40-year-old woman has not been identified and is hospitalized in critical condition. Rosado said she is awake and alert.

No officers were injured in the shooting.

Investigators are looking into a motive but Rosado said the former couple had a history of domestic violence.

Rosado said three officers are on paid administrative leave and possibly a fourth who was on scene but didn’t fire a weapon pending two investigations.

Arlington Police Department’s homicide team is conducting a criminal investigation. An administrative investigation led by internal affairs is underway to determine whether or not department policy was followed.

Additional information, such as body camera and other footage from the incident will be released at a later date.
