Last Thursday, Wichita Falls Police were called out to a disturbance at  the High Point Village Apartments around 10:25p.m.  Police said when the officers arrived on the scene they could hear arguing going on inside the apartment.

Officers were able to get into the apartment after a woman inside was able to open the door.  However, Johnson was pointing a gun at the officer.  The officer immediately pushed the woman out of the way and fired one shot.  Johnson was taken to the hospital.
