MARSHALL, Texas - Officials say East Texas deputies trying to serve a search warrant fatally shot a man who tried to speed away from the scene.
A spokesman for the Harrison County Sheriff's Office says special tactics deputies were trying to serve the narcotics warrant about 11 a.m. Thursday at a house in southwestern Marshall when 31-year-old Demetrius Williams tried to flee the scene in a minivan.
Lt. Jay Webb says while trying to speed away, Williams tried to run over a deputy.
That's when deputies opened fire, killing Williams. There were no other injuries.
