    DALLAS, Aug. 13 (UPI) -- At least three people are dead and a police officer was in serious condition after an early Sunday shootout on a Dallas freeway.

    Authorities said they were baffled by the shootout, which began when police went to the scene of what appeared to be a large car accident on Interstate 35E, WFAA-TV, Dallas/Ft. Worth reported.

    When two officers approached the people they thought were injured, the apparent accident victims opened fire, hitting one of the policemen.

    The policemen were not the first to encounter the bizarre situation, authorities said. Several other people who stopped to help were also shot at.

    Police took several people into custody at the scene, but it appeared the shooting suspect was killed when a carload of Good Samaritans fired back, WFAA-TV reported.

    "At this point, the scene is so complex that we truly don't know whether we have one shooter or multiple shooters -- or why they were shot or by who(m),"

    Dallas police spokesman Lt. Vernon Hale said. Copyright 2007 by United Press International. All Rights Reserved.

    Apparently the CCW guy didn't hit the shooter (who had a shotgun), and he turned it on himself before Police even got one shot off.

    More info - more spin. The armed citizen(s) are many 'graphs down in an article from a MSM outlet - no friend of liberty or or armed citizens.

    It didn't come across as biased to me. The article starts off, as all do, with a few highlights and then the known story as it happened.

    Perhaps the CCW guy would have made it to the highlights if he would have actually managed to hit something... :?
