Ricky Don McCommas, 49, was scheduled to appear in court in Cleburne on Friday. Instead, authorities said, he went to the Oak Trail Shores community, where the 16-year-old girl lived, and shot Hood County Sgt. Lance McLean when the deputy responded to a disturbance call.
McCommas then fled toward Granbury, where he was shot and killed in a gunfight with Granbury police near City Hall.
