Texas trooper, Dallas officer shot, suspect dead

DALLAS (AP) - A Texas trooper and a Dallas police officer were shot trying to serve a warrant in a confrontation that left a bank robbery suspect dead.

Department of Public Safety spokeswoman Tela Mange (MANJ) said the trooper was in stable condition Tuesday. She declined to release his name, pending notification of relatives.

A message left early Tuesday for the FBI was not immediately returned.

FBI spokesman Mark White says the shootings happened Monday night during an attempt to serve a warrant at a Dallas apartment. The officers were met with gunfire.

White says tactical officers later entered the apartment and found the body of the suspect, who was wanted for a series of bank holdups this year.

Investigators did not immediately say whether the man was killed by gunfire from officers or took his own life.
