Multiple private investigators attempted to serve a warrant on suspect Juan Carlos Lopez, 33, of Little Elm, for numerous counts of child sexual assault at a motel in the 6200 block of Broadway Boulevard in Garland Thursday around 7:30 p.m. local time (8:30 p.m. ET), said Garland Police in a news release.
Police officers heard gunfire erupt and discovered that one of the investigators “had been shot inside the motel room”. Upon entering the room officers discovered the suspected to be armed, which prompted three officers to open fire.
The private investigator was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced deceased.
An investigation is ongoing.
