    That's not what happened he was m6 friend and I heard different from friends that saw what went on the cop went to the front door of the house and when anthony came out he saw what he thought was a gun and opened fire on him. How did they change the story so much in the media I guess just to make the law enforcement look better because they knew they messed up yet AGAIN!!!

A Dallas police officer in plainclothes shot and killed a man Wednesday after finding him in a vehicle stolen in a carjacking the night before, police said.

The officer investigating the carjacking, which was reported about 8 p.m. Tuesday, found the stolen car about 9:40 a.m. Wednesday in the 3500 block of Virginia Boulevard in west Oak Cliff.

Driving the car was 24-year-old Anthony Garcia of Dallas, who got out and approached the officer holding a gun, Dallas police Maj. Jimmy Vaughan said.

The officer then shot Garcia, who died at the scene. The officer was not injured.

But police were told that a second person may be barricaded in a home nearby. Dozens of officers, several in tactical gear, were called to the neighborhood to coax the person out of the house.

Garcia's relatives gathered nearby to grieve as they waited for information about the shooting. Some of them shouted expletives at officers blocking the streets but were quickly held back by others.
