Dallas, TX – Armando Luis Juarez, 29, has been identified as a “person of interest” in the shooting of two Dallas PD officers and a loss-prevention officer at a Home Depot on Tuesday.
A female Dallas police officer was shot in the face Tuesday and is in critical condition, and a 27-year-old male officer was shot in the back of the head and will not survive his injuries, according to WFAA.
A “civilian” loss-prevention officer was also shot.
Multiple news outlets report that the male officer had died, but WFAA advises that the officer is mortally wounded and is only being kept alive until his mother can arrive at the hospital to say goodbye.
Dallas PD Chief Renee Hall refused the confirm the condition of any officers at a press conference Tuesday night.
The incident happened at the Home Depot in the 11,000 block of Forest Central Drive just before 4:30 p.m.
The loss-prevention officer called police for a shoplifting suspect at the store with a theft warrant. Two Dallas PD officers arrived and there was a confrontation where the Dallas PD officers and the loss-prevention officer were shot.
All three were transported to Presbyterian Hospital in extremely critical condition.
An active manhunt is underway for the shooter. Police have identified Armando Juarez as a “person of interest.”
Police now say that they believe Juarez fled in a white pickup truck. He should be considered armed and dangerous.
Please share this information on social media even if you aren’t in the area – this will help distribute his photo everywhere so he has nowhere to hide.
