Texas Rangers investigating officer involved shooting

UPDATE: Amarillo, TX - The suspect shot by a Randall County Deputy Friday night has died.

The Randall County Sheriff's Office has identified the man as 29-year-old, Matthew Dobbins.

Deputies were called to Mescalero Trail south of Amarillo near McCormick road Friday evening on a home burglary.

Dobbins was reportedly inside the residence, and officials were told he was armed, so they set up a perimeter around the home and a shooting situation took place.

Deputies said Dobbins then came out of the residence and confronted police.

At some point during the shooting incident, Dobbins was struck with a bullet and was taken to the hospital, where he later died.

No officers were injured in the incident and it remains under investigation.
