The incident happened shortly after 1 a.m. Friday following a disturbance in the parking lot between Chick-Fil-A and World Gym Express in the 4000 block of Dowlen Rd. Officer Cody Guedry said York was involved in multiple disturbances and had assaulted several male and female victims. An off-duty Beaumont Police Officer, who was not involved in the disturbances, intervened.
Guedry said, “York tried to assault the officer with a bat and the officer discharged his firearm. The suspect was pronounced deceased on the scene.”
