Man Allegedly Fires Gun at Dallas Police, Officers Return Fire

Dallas police are investigating an officer-involved shooting that happened at the 3400 block of Metropolitan Avenue on Sunday, the department confirms.

DPD said officers responded to a call at 6:15 Sunday evening about an argument between individuals in a parking lot. Upon arrival, officers located individuals arguing with one person holding a gun, DPD said.

That person, who remains unidentified at this time, approached and fired at officers. Officers then returned fire where the suspect was hit and is now in critical condition at a nearby hospital.

One other person was hit during the gunfire and is in stable condition, Dallas Police confirmed.

A DPD spokesperson confirmed two officers who fired their weapons are on paid administrative leave, which is standard after an officer involved shooting.

The Office of Community Police Oversight was notified and was on scene late Sunday.

Body worn camera footage is expected to be released publicly on Wednesday, the spokesperson added.
