EULESS, Texas (AP) - Statements reveal that a Dallas-area police officer killed earlier this month was telling a suspect in a creek to show his hands when the man fatally shot the officer mid-sentence.

WFAA-TV (https://bit.ly/1Ujzv6s ) reports Euless officers involved the March 1 shooting in which Officer David Hofer was killed have filed their first written accounts. The suspect, Jorge Gonzalez, was killed by police.

The officers’ attorney allowed WFAA-TV to review the draft documents. The statements were given to police Wednesday.

Officers were at J.A. Carr Park in Euless investigating a report of shots fired. After Hofer was shot, he tumbled into the creek next to Gonzalez.

The statements say that at one point, Gonzalez put up his hands to surrender, then pulled up a gun and continued firing.
