Witnesses said McCall shouted "I'm sorry" as he was taken into custody hours later.

8 a.m. The civilian killed is identified as Rene Gamez, 30.

Last year, a barricaded gunman in Little Elm unleashed a "hail of gunfire" on police Detective Jerry Walker and his fellow SWAT officers.

Brandon De McCall, 26, is being held in the Collin County jail following Wednesday evening's incident.

A police officer has been shot in Richardson while on a call. This is the first police officer death in Texas this year.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott offered his condolences on Twitter. "Your loss is a loss to all law enforcement and everyone in our great state", the governor said. And may his legacy live on in others' service. In Garland, he was arrested in 2009 on an unauthorized use of a vehicle charge and in 2010 of a drug possession charge. "It's the hardest day we've ever had". We're not doing well. A police spokesman said the conditions of the officer and the civilian weren't known, but that the officer had been taken to a hospital in nearby Plano. "It is an emotionally trying, traumatic day, but they're out there doing the things they do best serving this community".

Investigators are still at the apartments where the shooting happened. At this point, Plano detectives are still building the case to piece together the timeline and details of the events.

There is a third-story apartment window that is shattered and surrounded with what appears to be bullet holes.

Plano officers were out Thursday morning mapping the scene, and crime scene investigators were collecting evidence.
