RICHARDSON, Texas (AP) - A police officer has been fatally shot, another person is wounded and the suspect remains barricaded inside an apartment in suburban Dallas.

Police say the incident began about 7 p.m. Wednesday as the officer was checking on a report of a disturbance at the apartment complex in Richardson, Texas. The officer was taken to a hospital in nearby Plano. About three hours later, Richardson police reported that he had died.

Richardson police spokesman Sgt. Kevin Perlich (PUR'-lihk) said the condition of the wounded person wasn't immediately known.

Perlich said the suspect remained inside the apartment and that officers had the individual cornered.
