Two police officers and one civilian were shot at a Home Depot Tuesday afternoon. Authorities say the male police officer was shot in the back of the head and the female officer was shot in the face.
Both officers were gravely injured and one was resuscitated before being taken to Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas.
“We can confirm that two Dallas PD officers have been shot and critically wounded,” Dallas Police Department reported on Twitter. “We will provide updates as we get them. Please pray for our officers and their families.”
Officials could not confirm the civilian’s condition.
The suspect has been identified as 29 year old Armando Juarez, and he is still on the loose. Authorities released a mug shot of Juarez, from January when he was arrested for unlawful use of a vehicle.
Police with guns drawn were seen at the back of the Home Depot as employees appeared to be rushing out of the back of the store and away from the area.
Dallas SWAT and Canine Units are searching a creek bed nearby for the suspect.
The store was evacuated and workers were sent home for the day.
