Berne – According to Berne police, police officers shot dead a man after shooting a gunshot at a window in a child’s bedroom and pointing his weapon at the authorities.
The shooting took place Thursday at about 1:08 am at a house 200 blocks on Rosebud Street.
The dispatch was notified that a bullet had been fired when someone tried to enter the house. The coordinator received another call just four minutes later when the policeman began heading to the scene.
Callers believed to be home dwellers claimed that someone had fired a weapon at their home.
When police officers began working on the scene, they found a bullet hit the window in the bedroom where the child was sleeping. Officials said the child was unharmed.
At around 1:14 am, two police officers and an adjutant from the Kendal County Sheriff’s Office arrived and found suspect Karen Condon, 25, at the front door of another house in the neighborhood, police said.
According to the BPD, officials told Condon to “walk away from home and towards them.” But he did not follow the instructions, police said.
Instead, Condon knelt behind the bush and returned with his weapons, officials said.
Condon was told by police to drop his weapon several times, but he kept pointing his weapon in their direction, police said. Later, one of the police officers released the weapon at 1:16 am, officials said.
Police said Condon was found to be unresponsive behind a tall bush with a semi-automatic pistol. He was declared dead on the scene.
According to the BPD, police officer Brandon Goodrow, who released weapons at Condon, remains in management until the investigation is conducted as part of the department’s policy.
“The Texas Rangers will handle a shooting investigation involving police officers,” the BPD said in a statement.
Details of the case are limited at this time. We will provide more updates as they become available.
