Off-Duty Irving Officer Shot In Domestic Dispute

Over A Dozen Stabbed At Texas Community College

IRVING, Texas (AP) — An off-duty North Texas police officer has been shot twice during a domestic dispute with his estranged wife and she later allegedly took her own life.

Irving police on Wednesday identified the wounded man as Officer Brandon Spencer.

The Tarrant County Sheriff’s Office says the wife apparently shot her husband Tuesday night while at Spencer’s home near Mansfield. Authorities say Spencer, who has injuries not believed to be life-threatening, managed to get to a neighbor’s place to summon help.

Investigators say a body believed to be the woman was later discovered in a car in neighboring Johnson County. Authorities say the woman apparently committed suicide. Her name hasn’t been released.

Spencer has worked for the Irving Police Department for 18 years and is currently assigned to the investigative services bureau.
