BREAKING NEWS-DALLAS OFFICER DIES

One of two Dallas Police Department officers shot at a Lake Highlands Home Depot has died a day after the shooting. The officer was identified as 27-year-old Rogelio Santander. He’s the first Dallas police officer to be killed in the line of duty since the 2016 ambush in downtown that left four DPD officers and one DART officer dead.Santander and fellow Officer Crystal Almeida were shot when they responded to a call Tuesday afternoon at the Home Depot store in North Dallas. Both have been with the Northeast Division for three years and graduated in the same class at DPD’s training academy. A loss prevention officer at the store was also shot, police Chief Renee Hall said in a Tuesday evening news conference. The third victim wasn’t identified but was said to also be in critical condition. The person of interest, identified as 29-year-old Armando Juarez, was taken into custody after a police chase that ended off Lemmon Avenue near Dallas Love Field at about 9 p.m. Tuesday. Juarez has been charged with aggravated assault of a public servant, aggravated assault in retaliation, and theft of property up to $32,000. His bond has been set at just over $1 million. Police chased Juarez through the downtown Dallas area, and he was shooting at officers during the pursuit, sources said. The chase ended after Juarez drove through several yards in the 3700 block of Versailles Avenue in Highland Park, near Love Field Airport. A swarm of police officers converged on Juarez as he was taken into custody. Across town at Texas Presbyterian Hospital, where the wounded officers were being treated, police officers were seen rushing to their cars and peeling out of the parking lot as the pursuit for Juarez got underway. The two wounded Dallas officers were called to the Home Depot at U.S. 75 and Forest Lane about 4 p.m., when an off-duty Dallas police officer working at the store was trying to arrest a suspect behind the store. The two responding officers arrived, and a suspect “produced a hand gun and fire shots striking” the two officers and the civilian loss prevention officer.
