The Arlington Police Department is investigating an officer-involved shooting incident that occurred Sunday, June 9, 2024 in the 6500 block of S. Cooper Street.

At approximately 10:34 p.m., officers responded to Red Kane Park to investigate a reported domestic disturbance between a 42-year-old man and a 40-year-old woman who were previously in a relationship.

As officers pulled up to the park and were exiting their patrol vehicles, the man displayed a handgun and fired multiple shots at the woman, striking her. Three officers then immediately fired their service weapons at the man, striking him.

Officers rendered first aid to the man and the woman until paramedics arrived on scene. Both were transported to area hospitals.

The man was later pronounced deceased from his injuries. The Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office has since identified him as Shannon Boyd of Irving, TX.

The woman is currently listed in critical condition.

No officers were injured during this incident.

As is standard procedure anytime an officer fires their service weapon, there are currently two investigations taking place:

  • a criminal investigation led by the APD Homicide Unit that will review the entire incident and determine if any criminal offenses were committed.
  • an administrative investigation led by the APD Internal Affairs Unit that will determine whether officers followed department policies and procedures during the incident.

Per department policy, the officers involved have been placed on paid administrative leave.
