Around 7:30 PM yesterday, Dallas P.D observed a subject who was known to be wanted. Officers attempted to stop the vehicle the subject was driving.
The suspect took off leading officers on a pursuit, driving Northbound in the Southbound lanes of West Moreland Rd. The suspect then attempted to turn on Texas St where he then collided with another vehicle.
Suspect then got out of the vehicle and exchanged gunfire with officers, with one officer sustaining injuries to the hand. The uninjured officer called for backup while providing assistance to the injured officer.
Once backup arrived on scene, officers searched the area and located the suspect in the backyard of a home deceased from what appeared to be self inflicted gunshot wounds.
Both the officer and the suspect was transported to a nearby hospital. The officer is in stable condition.
