FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — A man has been charged in a shootout with Fort Worth police that left his fugitive father dead and an officer injured.
Police said Wednesday that 20-year-old Ed McIver Jr. is charged with attempted capital murder, evading arrest and unlawful carrying of a weapon.
The shootout Tuesday happened after officers tried to arrest 43-year-old Ed McIver Sr. on two aggravated assault charges and for jumping bail. The elder McIver was killed in the exchange of gunfire. His son was captured hours later with a rifle.
Officer Matt Pearce remains in critical condition Wednesday following surgery. Police are trying to determine who shot him.
Online jail records show he is being held on more than $2 million bond. An attorney for McIver Jr. isn’t listed in the jail records.
