North Texas deputy shoots man sought on Florida felony warrants

DENTON, Texas (AP) — Officials say a North Texas deputy has shot and killed a man sought on multiple felony warrants from Florida.

A Denton County Sheriff’s Office spokesman said deputies were trying to arrest the man shortly before 6 p.m. Monday at a house in a rural area near Sanger, about 50 miles northwest of Dallas.

Spokesman Orlando Hinojosa said the man jumped from a window and fled. Hinojosa said that when deputies gave chase, the man brandished a handgun. When the man refused to drop the gun, a deputy shot him.

No identities have been released for the suspect or the deputy.
