WEBXTRA: Cotton Belt Building break-in

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - Tyler police are investigating an incident in which a man allegedly broke into the Cotton Belt Building over the weekend and went on a rampage.

Officials believe the man was high on drugs when he broke into the Cotton Belt Building early Saturday morning.

The suspect started at the Salvation Army, where he complained of severe pain. After he tried to fight EMS personnel, he then took off across town, and ended up at the Cotton Belt Building, where he broke in and shattered several windows and doors throughout the building with his bare hands.

The suspect is now in intensive care.

We’ll have more on this investigation tonight.
