Violence against police serves as reminder for local officers

Police are near ExtraSpace Storage, south of Home Depot.

Dallas police Sgt. Michael Mata told KDFW-TV early Wednesday morning that Santander is "gravely, gravely ill" and that Almeida is "severely injured" but "fighting hard".

According to Juarez's arrest warrant, the off-duty officer ran a check on Juarez and discovered he has an outstanding felony warrant.

Investigators later reviewed police body-camera footage that showed Juarez pulling a handgun from his pocket as Santander and Almeida attempted to take him into custody, the warrant alleges. Officer Crystal Almeida remains in critical condition. He was subsequently charged with capital murder.

CBS 11 News sources say Juarez was not handcuffed and after being told he was going to jail, pulled a gun and shot the police officers and Mr. Painter.

"This is going to be a trying time for us, so we're just asking you for your support at this time", Hall said.

"Incredible police work", he said on Twitter.

The suspect led authorities on a high-speed vehicle chase before he was captured in a late-night arrest.

The Tyler Police Department has not lost an officer in the line of duty in 55 years.

Rawlings said he remains "upset at the lack of respect for our police in this city and in our country".

He spent two years with the department before transferring to Tyler's Police Department.

Relatives of Juarez said they couldn't believe he would be involved in such a violent episode. The news outlet reported he was arrested in January in a stolen auto and has pleaded guilty to a prior drug charge. He also pleaded guilty to a drug-possession charge. He added that the chain's leadership team has been actively supporting Painter's family and offering counselling to his co-workers.

Otherwise, Holmes said the company is referring to police all questions about the shooting and the run-up to it.
