On Thursday, August 27, 2015 at approximately 1:30 PM, officers responded to a call regarding a robbery in progress in the 3600 block of Penelope Street. The call sheet officers received indicated that suspect might be armed.  A subsequent call sheet indicated there was also a fire at the location. Dallas Fire Rescue and Dallas Police arrived at the location.

Upon arrival, officers observed the suspect in the corner of a vacant lot near the call location.  Officers approached the suspect to identify him. The officers gave loud verbal commands ordering the suspect to show his hands. The suspect did not comply. The suspect threw some of his personal items at the officers and a struggle ensued.  The suspect then fled from police in an attempt to get in a vehicle.

Additional officers arrived at the scene, at which time a Taser was deployed, striking the suspect. The Taser was ineffective and the suspect continued to resist officers. The struggle continued and the suspect was able to make entry into his vehicle. One of the officers involved in the struggle discharged his weapon, striking the suspect one time.  Emergency medical personnel were called to the scene. The suspect was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced deceased.

This incident remains under investigation.  Per policy, the officer will be placed on routine administrative leave and the Dallas District Attorney’s Office is conducting a concurrent investigation of this incident.  Notification has been made to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Dallas Office.
