Officer Involved Shooting on Jupiter Road


At approximately 11:30pm, Dallas Police officers were involved in an officer involved shooting in the 13000 block of Jupiter Road. 

Earlier that night officers observed a drug transaction in the parking lot of the gas station and attempted a traffic stop. The driver did not stop and officers and Air One attempted to follow, but lost sight of the vehicle. 

A short time later, officers located the car back at the gas station, with the suspect driver inside the business. 

When officers attempted to take the man into custody, a fight broke out and the suspect pulled a handgun from his waistband. 

One officer fired from his department issued weapon, hitting the suspect. 

The suspect was transported to a local hospital where he is in critical condition.  The officers were not injured. 

The Dallas County District Attorney’s Office and Office of Police Oversight were notified and responded. 

The investigation is ongoing.
