Police in riot gear converged on a neighborhood south of Fair Park after an officer shot and killed a man during a foot chase Tuesday evening.
An angry crowd of a few hundred people gathered on Dixon Avenue, some shouting at police.
At a late night news conference, Chief David Brown said Officer Brian Rowden chased 31 year old James Harper as he fled a known drug house. The Chief says the officer and suspect fought three times during the chase.
Officer Rowden then states at this time Mr. Harper said youre going to have to kill me, said Chief Brown. And, Officer Rowden, fearing for his life, pulled out his weapon, being beaten by Mr. Harper, shot Mr. Harper.

..cuz you was chasin me
And will we be seeing pictures of Jimmy Harper from when he was 12?
This is South Dallas near the Cotton Bowl, since people will be wondering.
One news report said it was probably another drug gang that called the cops on this drug gang that Harper may have been a part of.
Where did this man learn to say things like that when facing authority? We now have a nation where huge numbers of people believe no one has the right to correct, discipline, arrest or redirect them. We are facing anarchy and probably civil war.
Be careful what you wish for. Either scenario suggests that those with means should find another country in which to live ASAP.
Martin Luther King Blvd. A place you don’t go...even in broad daylight.
If BHO had a son...
WND has an article about how Obama’s sons are being inculturated to mass violence via the music industry. And this is the flagship demographic of the Left.
Time for our side to start gathering in angry crowds.
Yup...stumbled into that neighborhood one time off freeway from Fort Worth. Made sure doors locked and the next time I stopped at a stop sign or light was, NEVER. Had a handgun but felt like I would be outgunned.
Race riots in Anaheim. Race riots in Dallas. Terrorist shooting in Aurora. Let the pre-martial law riots begin. Will we make it to November?
Add to that the numerous counts of black mobs robbing stores, and black mobs attacking whites, with little to no national press.
We don't even have a "war" in Afghanistan. It's a "low-intensity conflict" and never gets resolved. Neither side wins.
That's what our "civil war" will be, and I think we're already in it.
The happiest man in all of Dallas today is John Wiley Price.
"I fight authority, authority always wins."
Obama just lost 3 more votes.

This wasn’t a race riot, just a bunch of people in the street after a police shooting in the neighborhood. And a very bad neighborhood at that.
Unfortunately, the guy killed by the cop was both unarmed and shot in the back. Fortunately, Dallas has a black police chief who seems to have settled things down last night.
We’ll see . . .
