Suspect Killed By Deputies In Harrison County

In the process of trying to serve a felony warrant, Harrison County sheriff's deputies shot and killed an East Texas man early this morning. It happened around 2:00 at 4000 Smelley road on the outskirts of Longview.

27 year old Toby Eliff was killed in a bedroom at the mobile home where he was staying with a friend. Deputies say they got a tip that Eliff was staying in the mobile home, and tried to talk him into surrendering.  They say they shot him when he reached for a gun on the bedroom floor.

Eliff was wanted on numerous charges in Upshur and Harrison Counties. Texas Rangers are conducting an investigation into the shooting.
