Texas Rangers are investigating following an officer-involved shooting involving two officers in Midland.

As we first reported on the NewsWest 9 Facebook page, the shooting happened around 7:30 p.m. near the intersection of Terrell St. and Industrial Ave.

City of Midland Public Information Officer, Sara Bustilloz, said officers were called out to the area in reference to a check person.

That's when, police said, they saw Kheyanev Littledog, 19, with a handgun in his waistband.

Police said dash camera footage and witness statements during the investigation revealed that Littledog was reaching for the gun when he was shot by two officers. 

Littledog was taken to the hospital where he later died.

We're told that Littledog was also in possession of a second firearm in his backpack at the time of the shooting and he wasn't licensed to carry a firearm.

According to public records, Littledog has a history of criminal offenses. Those charges include criminal trespass from 2015 where he pleaded no contest, drug possession in 2016 and public intoxication with three prior convictions in 2016. 

Both officers, Patrol Officer Aaron Renz, 26, and K-9 Officer Aaron Trevino, 31, have been placed on administrative leave pending an internal review.

Renz has been with the Midland Police Department for just under two years and Trevino has been with the department for over seven years.
