  • FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Police say a man fatally shot by an officer outside a North Texas hotel allegedly had taken a guest's laptop computer.
    The Fort Worth officer who shot and killed 34-year-old Derek Ternes of Bismarck, N.D., was on paid administrative leave Wednesday.
    Police early Tuesday responded to a hotel manager's call about a parking lot fight and a guest shot. Police confronted Ternes, who refused to put down his weapon and opened fire.
    Sgt. Pedro Criado (kree-AH'-doh) says an officer returned fire and killed Ternes. No officers were hurt.
    Criado says the license plate on the gunman's vehicle linked Ternes to a previous threat to get into a shootout with police.
    The wounded guest was in critical condition when transported to a hospital. Further details on him weren't immediately released Wednesday.
