Authorities say the armed fugitive shot and killed by an Arlington police officer Thursday was an illegal immigrant wanted for rape.

A U.S. Marshal’s Task Force tracked 46-year-old Juan Jimenez-Salas to North Texas after police in Arkansas say he was wanted on 11 felony charges there, including five counts of rape and six counts of indecency with a child.
