Now this is the most strangest incident I’ve ever had to report on but sometimes, stranges just happens:
From CBS DFW
DALLAS, Texas – A prominent Dallas attorney was killed by police after a shoot-out at his luxury apartment building early Sunday morning.
CBS DFW reports that according to Deputy Chief Gil Garza, Michael Edward Schmidt told an employee at the Glass House that his apartment was being burglarized. The 47-year-old lawyer then reportedly barricaded himself on the ground floor and opened fire on officers after police arrived, according to a building employee.
Garza told the station that officers retreated and took cover, while attempting to speak with Schmidt. But Schmidt reportedly advanced on the police, who then returned fire, killing him.
Sources told CBS DFW, Schmidt was taking off his clothes and stripped down to his underwear during the incident.
Schmidt’s 11-year-old daughter was reportedly in the apartment at the time of the shoot-out. According to CBS DFW, Schmidt was recently divorced and has four children.
Now Michael is known in the industry for filing lawsuits against many supplement companies such as USP Labs, Muscletech, Isotari, Gaspari, Nutrex…..well the list goes on and on just to make it clear. But for an attorney to end up being shot down by cop buck naked was quite unexpected. But upon the inspection of the items in his home, its pretty clear that Mr Schmidt was under the influence of either meth or coke along with a number of anti-depressants. Also, oddly enough, he had 10 Texas drivers licenses as well.
We may never know exactly what was going through his head but all I can say is…..DAMN!!!
