Levelland man kills self during confrontation with police


Levelland police say one man is dead after they attempted to serve a warrant at his residence on Thursday night.

Officers went to his home around 8 p.m. and knocked on the door for an extended period.

The occupant did eventually respond but police say he refused to exit the house and produced a handgun.

The officers heard a single gunshot from inside the house, took cover and returned fire.

Officers approached the house and found the man dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The Texas Rangers are investigating the incident.

The man has been identified as 44-year-old Lloyd Halbrooks.

Levelland Police Chief Toney Cowan says Halbrooks did not have a criminal history and that the officers fired a total of three shots after one shot was fired inside the house.
