Award-winning Dallas chef dead in police showdown

Posted: Updated:

DALLAS (AP) - A man shot and killed by Dallas special tactics officers was an award-winning chef.

Travis Henderson had helped the kitchen at The Place at Perry's in Dallas to national prominence, winning it the 2004 North American Restaurant Association Award of Excellence.

Dallas police Lt. Scott Walton says the 52-year-old chef was shot dead in a far north Dallas church parking lot after he pointed a handgun at officers. He didn't fire.

Police had searched for Henderson for about an hour after his wife reported that he had left their home in nearby Carrollton armed with a handgun. She expressed concern over his state of mind.

Carrollton police spokesman Jon Stovall told The Dallas Morning News that Henderson had a history of unstable behavior.
