Police release name of suspect killed by officer in Wednesday night shooting in Paris

Christopher Lane Nash, 59, of Dallas has been identified as the person shot to death Wednesday night during a confrontation with Paris law enforcement officers at a convenience store on Church Street.

Police Chief Bob Hundley said a Paris police officer shot Nash after he rammed a police vehicle with his truck as officers moved in to arrest him during a joint investigation by the Paris Police Department and Lamar County Sheriff’s Office into a large amount of illicit drugs being delivered to the Paris area.

Tina Marie Silva, who was in Nash's vehicle, faces three drug charges.

“As the suspect’s vehicle was trying to escape, officers on foot were also trying to apprehend the suspect. The suspect refused to stop, placing the officers lives in jeopardy and was shot by a Paris officer,” Hundley said.

Nash was taken by ambulance to Paris Regional Medical Center, where he died, Hundley said.

Tina Marie Silva, 35, a passenger in Nash’s vehicle, was booked into the Lamar County Jail on three charges: delivery of more than one ounce of a controlled substance in a drug-free zone, possession of more than two ounces of marijuana in a drug-free zone, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Both Nash and Silva were shown to be living at 518 S. Willomet in west Dallas.

The investigation has been turned over to the Texas Rangers, since personnel from both the police department and the sheriff’s office were involved in the incident.

Officers involved in this type of incident are placed on administrative leave with pay during the preliminary investigation, Hundley said.

The name of the officer who fired the fatal shot was not released.
