PILOT POINT, Texas -- The Texas Rangers are investigating a fatal shooting late Friday morning involving a Pilot Point police officer.

According to initial accounts, officers responding to reports of a fight in progress saw a man with a gun in the driveway of a residence in the 500 block of East Division Street around 11:15 a.m.  Police said the officers saw the man enter the house and then followed him after hearing sounds of a struggle.

"Officers report that the man produced a gun and refused police commands," said Texas Highway Patrol spokesman Lt. Lonny Haschel in a written statement. "A Pilot Point officer fired his service weapon, striking the suspect."

The suspect was pronounced dead at the scene, and another person was hospitalized with "multiple injuries" sustained in the fight.

No names were released.

Pilot Point is located in the northeast corner of Denton County, just south of Cooke and Grayson counties.
