A man who was shot by officers in Garland died at a hospital after leading authorities on a chase Monday afternoon and opening fire on them, according to police.

Officers tried to stop a white car about 5:30 p.m. Monday near the intersection of South Jupiter Road and Russwin Drive, the Garland Police Department announced in a news release. The driver of the car refused to stop, and led officers on a chase before stopping less than a mile away in a residential area in the 3900 block of Glenhaven Drive, police said.

Police said the driver, later identified as Adrian Castillo, 32, got out of his car and “produced a weapon,” and opened fire on the officers’ vehicle. An officer who has worked at the department for four years and a second officer with three years of experience, got out of their car and returned fire, striking him, according to the release.


Emergency crews transported Castillo to a hospital, where died Tuesday morning. No officers were injured, according to Garland police spokesman Richard Maldonado.

Castillo had a bond forfeiture warrant related to a charge of indecency with a child at the time of the shooting, police said.

The Dallas County District Attorney’s Office will review police video footage of the incident Maldonado said. The two officers were placed on administrative leave, per department policy.
