Man fatally shot after leading police on chase

- Associated Press - Monday, April 21, 2014

DALLAS (AP) - Dallas police say a man was fatally shot after pointing a gun at officers during a standoff following a car chase.

The chase began Monday afternoon when officers tried to take Michael Mayo into custody after learning he had felony warrants for his arrest.

Dallas Police Deputy Chief Gil Garza says Mayo led officers on a 30 minute chase through south Dallas before ending up in a mall parking lot.

Garza says that during the standoff with officers, the 30-year-old Mayo got out of his vehicle and pointed a gun at his head. Mayo then went back in his vehicle but later got out again and then pointed his gun at officers, who fired at Mayo.

Garza says no officers were hurt.
