Officer Involved Shooting on Jupiter Road

On July 27, 2022, Dallas Police officers were investigating drug complaints outside the LBJ Food Mart in the 13000 block of Jupiter Road.

At 10:20 pm, while in the parking lot, an undercover officer saw 30-year-old Kyle Dail make multiple hand-to-hand drug sales, then get into the driver’s side of a Nissan Versa and leave the gas station.

The officer followed the vehicle and saw a traffic violation and requested a marked patrol car to make a traffic stop.

At around 10:25 pm, at 635 and Skillman, the officers attempted to stop the vehicle.

The driver did not stop, and Air One attempted to follow the car but lost sight of the suspect, and the operation was called off.

Around 11:35 pm, Dail returned to the gas station and entered the business. An officer recognized the vehicle and Dail as the suspect who refused to stop for police and called for officers to respond and take him into custody for evading.

At around 11:43 pm, Officers Thomas Hoffman, Noah Hemm, and Michael Piering of Northeast patrol responded and entered the store, locating Dail standing facing the back wall.

The officers approached Dail from behind and attempted to arrest him. 

The suspect started to resist the officers and officers struggled to take him into custody.

During that struggle, Dail pulled a handgun from his front pants pocket and raised it in the air in front of Officer Hoffman’s face.

After the suspect took out the handgun, Officer Hoffman fired his department-issued weapon hitting the suspect.

After reviewing store surveillance cameras and the officers’ body-worn cameras, detectives saw the suspect remove the handgun from his pocket.

An officer can be heard on body-worn camera warning the other officers the suspect had a gun.

Dail transitions the weapon from his right to his left hand then throws the weapon to another aisle in the business.

A moment after Dail threw his weapon, Officer Hoffman fired his duty weapon.

Officer Hoffman is the only officer to discharge his weapon in this incident. 

Officers took possession of the suspect’s gun and requested Dallas Fire Rescue to the scene. 

Dail was unresponsive and taken to Presbyterian Hospital, where he remains in critical condition.

The Dallas Police Special Investigations Unit responded and continues to investigate the incident.

The Dallas County District Attorney’s Office responded and is conducting an independent investigation.

This is the fourth officer-involved shooting involving a Dallas Police officer in 2022.
