BREAKING: Two Dallas Police Officers Shot Responding To Domestic Violence Call

Dallas, TX – Two Dallas police officers were shot on Monday morning in Old East Dallas while responding to a domestic violence call.

The incident occurred at about 11:07 a.m. on Feb. 18 in the 5300-block of Bonita Avenue near North Henderson Avenue, KXAS reported.

Dallas Police Chief Eddie Garcia said the officer were responding to a family violence call when they were shot, KDFW reported.

The Dallas Police SWAT Team responded to the scene where the suspect is believed to have barricaded themselves.
