Police have released the name of an 18-year-old man fatally shot Wednesday morning by police at a Longview apartment complex.
Detravian Allison was shot at Longview Square Apartments on Pine Tree Road and later died from his injuries, police confirmed Wednesday afternoon.
Officers responded at about 10:40 a.m. to a business in the 400 block of Loop 281 about a reported criminal trespass, police said.
An employee told officers a man had made threats before leaving the business. Police were given a description and license plate of a vehicle that had been stolen in an aggravated robbery Friday in Longview.
Officers began checking parking lots and apartments in the area, according to police. Officers went to Longview Square Apartments at about 11 a.m. to look for the vehicle and found it along with two people.
Police said one of the men raised a handgun and pointed it at officers. Officers then fired, striking the man, who was identified as Allison. He was taken by ambulance to a local hospital where he later died from his injuries.
Police did not say if the other man with the vehicle was taken into custody.
Officers involved in the shooting will be placed on administrative leave per department policy. The Texas Rangers are investigating.
Police ask anyone with information about the incident to call Gregg County Crime Stoppers at (903) 236-7867.
