An ax-wielding University of North Texas student was fatally shot near the UNT campus after he advanced toward a university officer early Sunday.
Police responded to a report that someone was breaking car windows about two blocks from campus. A UNT officer then found 21-year-old Ryan McMillan in the parking garage with an ax in his hand.
When he refused to drop the ax and ran out into the street, the officer opened fire. McMillan was taken to a local hospital where he later died. The officer was placed on administrative duty. Authorities are investigating.
