Investigators say a gunman who was fatally shot aboard an Amtrak train by Dallas police didn't fire any shots
during the confrontation that also injured an undercover officer and innocent bystander.
Dallas Police Chief David Brown said Tuesday that preliminary findings indicate no gunshots were fired from the handgun brandished Monday afternoon by the suspect.
The officer and bystander also were shot, though their injuries weren't life-threatening.
Police say three plainclothes officers spotted a suspicious man at Union Station in downtown Dallas and followed him onto a train, then fired shots after the suspect drew a handgun.
The Dallas County Medical Examiner's Office identified the gunman as 32-year-old Stephen Ray Malone Jr. of Waterford, Mich. Online court records show Malone's long criminal history including convictions for larceny, fraud and theft.
