Police: Man charged in officer’s death ‘wanted to go to war’

Richardson Police Department

RICHARDSON, Texas (AP) — Investigators allege that a 26-year-old man charged in the shooting death of a suburban Dallas police officer said he “wanted to go to war with the police” who confronted him last month at an apartment complex.
A police affidavit released Thursday asserts that Brandon McCall expressed his intentions in phone calls he made from the Collin County jail following his arrest.
McCall was charged with capital murder in the aftermath of the Feb. 7 shooting at the Richardson complex. He was charged Thursday with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
Officer David Sherrard was shot twice when he rushed into an apartment to confront McCall.
McCall also is accused of earlier shooting a friend who later died of his wounds.
An attorney for McCall says they’ll respond to the allegations in court.
