GARLAND, Texas — A bail bond agent and a suspect were killed in a shooting incident in Garland on Thursday night, police say.

Police said bail agents were serving a felony warrant around 7:30 p.m. at a motel in the 6200 block of Broadway Boulevard, near Interstate 30, when the suspect shot one of them.

According to police, officers were already on their way to the scene when they were notified about the bail company serving the warrant, which was for multiple counts of sexual assault of a child.

Police were on scene when they heard gunfire and learned one of the bail agents had been shot inside the motel room, according to a police news release.

Police then entered the motel room and fatally shot the suspect, who was identified as 33-year-old Juan Carlos Lopez, of Little Elm.

Lopez died at the scene, while the agent was transported to a hospital and later pronounced dead, police said.
