JOSEPHINE, Texas (AP) - Authorities have released the identity of a 62-year-old man suspected of confronting officers at a tiny North Texas town’s city hall with a rifle.

A spokesman for the Texas Department of Public Safety said Bobby Darryl Chamberlain of Josephine remains hospitalized with non-life-threatening wounds.

Lt. Lonny Haschel said officers at the Josephine city hall gave “verbal commands” to a rifle-brandishing Chamberlain Thursday night before opening fire “in reaction to the perceived threat.”
