Man newly released from jail before Dallas airport shooting
DALLAS (AP) - Police say a 29-year-old Maryland man was newly released from jail on a criminal mischief charge when an officer shot him outside a Dallas airport.
Dallas Police Chief David Brown says Shawn Nicholas Diamond of Edgewood, Maryland, was in stable condition in a hospital after the Friday incident outside the Dallas Love Field terminal.
Brown says Diamond struck his ex-girlfriend and battered her car with a traffic cone and large landscaping rocks outside the airport. He says an officer shot Diamond after he advanced with rocks in his hands.
Police in the Dallas suburb of Carrollton say Diamond was released on bond earlier Friday after spending the night in jail. Carrollton police spokeswoman Jolene DeVito says Diamond was arrested after causing $3,700 in damage to city-owned trees by driving recklessly.
