Three Texas police officers were shot and killed in Flower Mound, and the suspect is still at large.
Three officers were shot while responding to a report of a suicidal person in a Dallas suburb on Wednesday night, officials said. A suspect remains at large.
Police were dispatched to the 2900 block of Termaine Drive in Flower Mound just after 7 p.m. after receiving a 911 call.
Policemen attempted to contact the man, the home’s lone occupant, when he opened fire, killing three officers, according to the Flower Mount Police Department.
Officers returned fire, according to authorities, but the man has not been seen since the shooting.
Two of the policemen were rushed to hospitals and are in stable condition, while the third was treated and cleared at the scene.
According to WFAA, the shooting suspect had previously surrendered his firearms to the police department following an incident, but the weapons were returned to him earlier this month.
Residents were advised to stay away from the area by police. The police statement said, “The situation is ongoing, and there is a substantial police presence in the vicinity.” “Please stay away from the area as it is still active.”
