Dallas police say a man who turned out to be unarmed even though he told officers he had a pistol was shot to death by police during a standoff.
The man asked someone at an area business to call police for him
on Sunday morning. That call indicated he had a gun.
Police say when they arrived, they found 32-year-old Tony
Menchaca on the street. They blocked off the street and maintained
contact with Menchaca, who wandered around for about an hour and
told them he had a pistol.
When he made gestures police thought were threatening, five
officers fired on him. Menchaca was shot multiple times and died.
Police are investigating the shooting.
