On April 30, 2019 at approximately 1:13 pm, officers were dispatched to investigate a suspicious person call at the 600 block of N. Clark Road in Duncanville. Upon arrival, the officers attempted to approach the individual, who refused to comply with commands and made statements indicating he had warrants for his arrest and was not going to jail. The suspicious person began reaching for something in a bag and continued to ignore officer commands to display his hands. After making aggressive movements with his hand in the bag, Duncanville police officers discharged their weapons and struck the suspect. Duncanville police officers administered first aid and the suspect was transported to Methodist Dallas Medical Center and is in stable condition with non-life-threatening injuries.
Since this is an officer involved shooting, the Dallas County Sheriff’s Office will handle the case moving forward. The investigation is ongoing.
