Off-duty DPD officer shot and killed in apparent murder-suicide

The Dallas police officer who was shot and killed Saturday night in a Dallas apartment has been identified as a six-year veteran of the force.

A police spokesman said Officer Larry Tuttle was murdered inside his apartment in the 9700 block of Forest Lane by a woman he knew.

Investigators believe the woman killed herself after she shot Tuttle.

A 6-year-old child was also found unharmed inside the apartment. The child is now in the care of Child Protective Services.

Police are still investigating what prompted the murder-suicide.

Officer Tuttle joined the Dallas Police Department six years ago. He worked out of the South Central Patrol Division.
