An officer-involved shooting has been reported at a Home Depot located in the 11600 block of Forest Central Drive in Dallas.

Two police officers were shot and critically wounded outside a home improvement store in the U.S. state of Texas, police said.

Dallas police respond to the scene where a man shot two police officers and a loss prevention officer at a Home Depot on April 24, 2018.

Dallas police say they have arrested a suspect in the shooting.

Police arrested 29-year-old Armando Juarez in connection with the shooting.

A loss prevention officer at the store, who is a civilian, was also shot in the incident at USA 75 and Forest Lane, police Chief Renee Hall said in an evening news conference. He was taken into custody shortly before 10 p.m. on Tuesday after a lengthy vehicle chase involving officers of various law enforcement agencies.

A civilian was also shot in the incident. A swarm of police officers converged on Juarez as he was taken into custody.

The sources claimed that their party would see much less infighting and rebellion than the BJP as it will reach out to the rebels. The first list of BJP, comprising 72 candidates, for the upcoming May 12 Karnataka assembly elections has been released.

The suspect, who was thought to be armed, remained at large last night after a manhunt that began near the wooded area and the creek behind the store. One officer's family is at the hospital, and one is en route to the hospital.

Police identified the suspect as Armando Juarez, 29, and was wearing a white T-shirt and blue jean shorts.

The female officer was shot in the face and remains in critical condition, according to a local media source.

Authorities requested for prayers for officers, their households, and the police division.

"I continue to be upset at the lack of respect of our police in this city and in our country", said Mayor Mike Rawlings, who also attended the hospital news conference.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott tweeted condolences to the victims following the shooting.
