Armed man subdued by police while attempting to enter Flower Mound fire station
The Flower Mound Police Department and Texas Rangers are investigating an officer involved shooting that occurred this morning at Flower Mound Fire Station #7.
It all began when 9-1-1 callers reported an armed man pointing a gun at people in the area of Post Oak Park. As officers arrived in the area, the armed man was attempting to enter Flower Mound Fire Station #7, located at 2777 Skillern Road.
When the officers encountered the man at the fire station, he pointed the gun at officers, causing them to fire multiple shots. The suspect was not hit, but officers were able to tase and subdue him before he could hurt anyone.
The suspect is facing multiple charges. His identity has not yet been released.
This incident is the second major incident involving Flower Mound first responders this week. On Wednesday night, three Flower Mound police officers were shot during an encounter with a suicidal subject. Luckily, all three officers are going to be OK.
