Officers return fire, kill suspect in Texas trooper gunfire

CENTER, Texas (AP) - Investigators say officers have fatally shot an armed man who was sought on an attempted capital murder warrant after allegedly shooting at a Texas trooper last week.

The Department of Public Safety says 28-year-old Antonio Aguilar of Center was killed early Sunday. No officers were hurt in either incident.

Sgt. David Hendry says Aguilar was sought following a traffic stop Wednesday in which an SUV backed into a DPS vehicle, a trooper opened fire and then a suspect shot at the trooper.

Officers on Saturday received a tip that Aguilar was at a home in Center, 160 miles (257.48 kilometers) northeast of Houston. Hendry says officers negotiated with Aguilar until he came out and began firing.

Officers returned fire.

A man from Center was charged Sunday with harboring a fugitive.
