FORT WORTH, Texas- On June 9, 2019, members of the Fort Worth Police Department were involved in an officer involved shooting in the area of 5200 East Berry Street.  The following information is available for release: 

 Police were called out on a disturbance call involving a person with a felony warrant at 4513 Jennifer Court. Prior to officers’ arrival, the suspect fled the scene. SRT Officers began conducting surveillance in the area and later observed the suspect enter a vehicle occupied by two other individuals. A marked patrol unit attempted to conduct a traffic stop and the suspect fled the vehicle on foot along with Jevon Monroe (B/M 17 YOA). The 3rd individual remained with the vehicle and spoke with officers. Officers observed the primary suspect holding a handgun while they gave chase and they quickly lost sight of him.

While searching the area for both suspects, the police helicopter observed one suspect, Jevon Monroe, hiding beneath a vehicle in the backyard of a residence near 5200 East Berry Street. Officers approached Monroe and were able to take him into custody without incident.

 Officers continued to search the immediate area for the second suspect and soon located him inside a vehicle that was parked in the backyard; he was the only occupant in the vehicle.  Numerous verbal commands were given to the suspect and he did not comply with any of the commands given. As officers attempted to break the glass of the vehicle to gain a better view of the suspect, the suspect made an overt action placing the officers in fear for their lives.  Three officers responded to this threat with deadly force. 

Tactical Medical officers were on-scene to provide emergency medical treatment to the suspect; he did not survive and was pronounced deceased at the scene. 

 Crime scene personnel located a handgun inside the vehicle and evidence supports that the suspect fired this weapon. Testing will be performed on the gun to verify that the evidence located is from the gun collected.

 Three officers discharged their weapons during this critical police incident.  Those officers have been employed for five, seven and 10 years.

 As with all critical police incidents, it is standard practice to place the involved officers on administrative leave while the Major Case Unit and Internal Affairs Unit are conducting their investigations.

 The investigative findings will be forwarded to the Tarrant County District Attorney’s office for Grand Jury Review upon conclusion.

Additionally, the Major Case Unit requests any additional witnesses who may have information regarding this incident to contact them at 817-392-4455.
