Suspect shot by police at Arlington mall in critical condition

Reports: Officer-involved shooting closes Parks Mall in Arlington

Police spokesman Lt. Christopher Cook says the incident occurred on Sunday afternoon after a theft was reported at a store inside The Parks at Arlington mall. Photos show him holding it toward an officer, who then opened fire and shot the suspect.

The department's Chris Cook said it's too hard for an officer to differentiate a real versus a fake gun during a pursuit.

The suspect was taken to a nearby hospital and is now being treated for his injuries. Police believe during that time Dodd drove to the Parks Mall.

Two officers gave pursuit through the crowded mall after identifying the suspect, who had allegedly stolen two pairs of sunglasses. Police say the suspect attempted to flee from security before going up an escalator toward the food court. He warned the dispatcher that he had a gun and would shoot at police if they tried to pursue him.

Cook said the vehicle was registered to a woman, whom police contacted.

Fare hike will kill Delhi Metro, says Arvind Kejriwal
The Delhi government had opposed the fare hike and locked horns with the DMRC and central government over the matter. Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday said the steep hike in fares will kill the Metro.

The Arlington Voice reached out to the Tarrant County District Attorney's office to learn more about the felony charge Dodd previously faced, but had not heard back by the publishing of this report.

"There's just no training in the world that will afford an officer the ability to distinguish what is real and what is fake in the heat of the moment", he said.

"In the call Mr. Dodd claimed that he was a suspect in an evading arrest call", said Cook.

'Replica imitation firearms/BB guns have no place in society when used in criminal endeavors'. "So we sent officers to Stovall Park".
