Longview News-Journal

A man shot dead by a Gladewater police officer Saturday offered taunts and threats - and at one point seemed to gain control of the officer's gun - during a police chase before he was killed, according to video and audio footage released by the Gladewater Police Department.

Patrick Michael Wise, 34, of Gladewater died early Saturday morning near the intersection of East Lake Drive and Highway 80 after Officer Robert Carlsen attempted to make a traffic stop in the 1300 block of Highway 80.

Carlson has been placed on paid administrative leave while the Texas Rangers and the Gregg County District Attorney's Office investigate.
