A traffic stop in Texas left a police officer dead and another man wounded after an officer fired a shot at him, officials said Sunday.
The shooting occurred early Sunday morning in the Dallas suburb of Richardson, according to the Houston Police Department.
The officer, identified as Michael Kostov, was at the home of the man, a 25-year-old man, when he was shot multiple times, police said in a statement.
The victim was taken to a hospital in critical condition, police and the victim’s family said.
The shooting remains under investigation.
Authorities said Kostos involvement in the shooting was not a crime.
The victim’s father, Michael Kowalski, told the Associated Press that his son was a devoted father who loved his son.
“He was just an honest man.
He just had a heart of gold,” Kowelski said.
The father added that he was thankful that the officer, who is African-American, would be found not guilty.
