A soon-to-be wed former NYPD cop who relocated to Texas was killed in a shootout Tuesday in a park near Dallas.
David Hofer, 29, who grew up in Brooklyn, was responding to a report of
a suspicious person and possible gunfire at J.A. Carr Park in Euless,
Tex., just after 2:45 p.m., said Police Chief Mike Brown.
“On approach, he encountered gunfire. Officer Hofer was struck, and
responding Euless officers returned fire, striking the suspect,” who
also died, Brown said.
