  • Shooting Parks Mall

A police officer shot a man in Texas after the latter pulled out a BB gun in a busy shopping mall on Sunday. Two uniformed Arlington police officers initially responded.

Police also saying no suspects are at large and the incident is under control. "There's no training in the world that officers receive that will enable them to do that, so this is a very unfortunate incident." said Lt. Cook. He said the responding officer was able to identify the registration on the vehicle and a higher-ranking officer chose to cancel the pursuit. "Just made sure there were no kids close to the kiosk." he said.

As the suspect and the officer squared off against one another, the suspect withdrew his mostly harmless air weapon and aimed it at the officer, who responded in turn-with a real gun-and shot him.

The mall was placed on lockdown, then evacuated and closed for the day. She told police that she had loaned the vehicle to Dodd on Friday. Police didn't pursue him in that case since they recognized Dodd after running his license plate number.

Dodd is still at the Medical Center of Arlington Hospital heavily sedated and in critical condition.

Two officers gave pursuit through the crowded mall after identifying the suspect, who had allegedly stolen two pairs of sunglasses.
