Home Depot LP & Two Cops Shot

Suspect Arrested After High-Speed Chase


Dallas, TX: 2 Dallas Police Officers and a Home Depot Loss Prevention Agent In Critical Condition After Being Shot outside Home Depot
Police say Armando Juarez was being escorted out of a Home Depot store Tuesday afternoon when he opened fire, shooting two police officers and a civilian loss prevention officer. The two officers were responding to a call by an off-duty officer to assist in an arrest at the store late Tuesday afternoon, Dallas Police Chief Renée Hall told reporters in a news conference. Hall did not disclose details of the shooting, but said that the gunman had fled the scene. Fire Dallas Rescue took the injured officers to Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital. Hall said at a later news conference, that the two officers and the Home Depot loss prevention officer were out of surgery. She did not provide specifics on their conditions but asked for “continued prayers for them and their families.” The Dallas Police Department’s helicopter unit said that, after a “lengthy car chase,” a suspect was arrested in connection with the shooting about 9 p.m. abc13.com

Editor's Note: If they were in fact escorting him out of the store and assisting in an arrest, why wasn't the suspect searched and handcuffed? None of the articles at this time answer these questions.
