DALLAS — One police officer has died and another was critically wounded in a shooting Tuesday by a gunman inside a Home Depot store in northeast Dallas, which set off a five-hour manhunt that ended with the chase and arrest of the suspected shooter.
On Wednesday morning, Dallas police identified the officers as Chrystal Almeida and Rogelio Santander, who have both worked in the Northeast Division for three years.
The officers were rushed to Texas Health Presbyterian Dallas hospital where they underwent surgery, Dallas police Chief Renee Hall said.
Later in the morning, Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings announced that Santander had died, according to police spokesman Demarquis Black.
