A 37-year-old man was shot and killed by a Kerrville law enforcement officer in western Gillespie County early Wednesday morning.
Kerrville police, in conjunction with the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force, attempted to locate Michael Lynch for warrants, who was believed to be in the Kerrville area.
At 12:15 a.m. Wednesday, Lynch was located in Kerrville but fled from police. He led law enforcement on a vehicle pursuit which ended in Gillespie County near Harper, police said in a statement.
Once in Gillespie County, Lynch exited his vehicle and led police on a two- to three-mile foot pursuit through heavy brush, at one point swimming across a creek.
Police were able to locate Lynch with the assistance of a Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) helicopter.
The KPD said during the course of the pursuit, a Kerrville police officer shot Lynch. The suspect was pronounced dead at the scene.
