Standoff Turns To Shootout, Leaving Whitehouse Man Dead

The Texas Rangers are investigating a nighttime shooting Tuesday that ended with a Whitehouse man dead.

Witnesses say around 7 o'clock, Whitehouse Police responded to a domestic call on Tomlin Street, just off Highway 110.  Officers reportedly told the man to put down his gun and come out of the house, and that's when witnesses say he ran outside towards the officers, firing his gun.

Officers then returned fire, killing the man. No one else was hurt in the exchange.

The man's identity has not yet been released.
