Fugitive Captured – A Message from Police Chief Stephen Mylett

Citizens of Southlake:
I am happy to report to you that the search for escaped fugitive Alberto Morales has ended. Morales was shot and killed by law enforcement shortly before midnight last night after he had committed a residential burglary and refused to surrender.
I know this past week has been an extremely stressful one for you and your families and on behalf of the men and women of the Southlake Police Department and City leaders I want to personally thank you for your continued support during the intense week-long manhunt.
The tips provided by residents ultimately led law enforcement to the fugitive and helped put an end to the manhunt. Details of the confrontation with Morales will be provided by the Grapevine Police Department. Thank you and enjoy your weekend.
