Dallas mayor: Body of suspected shooter found in home

MAY 1 2017 Police on scene of an active shooting in which a firefighter was shot in East Dallas

Assistant Police Chief Randy Blankenbaker said during a news conference Tuesday that the suspect, Derick Lamont Brown, opened fire on paramedics responding to a shooting call at his home Monday.

The attack prompted police to block access to the area until a police robot searched Brown's home, where it found Brown and his roommate dead.

The shooting suspect, who has not been identified, is accused of shooting a bystander, and a Dallas paramedic/firefighter late Monday morning.

At least one paramedic, who is also a firefighter, was shot and taken to Baylor University Medial Center.

A DFR paramedic was the first to arrive at the scene and began providing medical treatment to an injured person. Police say a paramedic was hit.

Emergency responders were treating the civilian around 11:30 a.m.in a neighborhood east of downtown when another person approached, opened fired and critically injured the paramedic, according to a statement released early Monday by the city. The Dallas Police Department tweeted that a member of Dallas Fire Rescue had been shot, but no details about the circumstances have been confirmed.

A Dallas officer was also treated at the scene for an unspecified injury, authorities said.

Police closed roads near the intersection of Interstate 30 and Dolphin Street shortly after the shooting. Police arrived and took cover immediately and returned fire at the shooter, but the gunman was able to escape. The shooting was initially reported as a possible suicide, which added to the confusion as officers arrived, Blankenbaker said.

He visited a Holocaust memorial in Paris on Sunday and a village burned down by the Nazis in World War Two last week. According to the survey, he is projected to secure 61 percent of votes in the run-off against Le Pen's 39 percent.

Across the country, some fire officials worry body arm might cause medics to take unnecessary risks going into danger instead of waiting for police to secure the scene.

The scene remains active and police have described the area as "active and very risky".

The sergeant drove the injured paramedic in his squad vehicle to Baylor University Medical Center, where the paramedic underwent surgery, according to the Washington Post.

The original shooting victim, the gunman's neighbor, is in stable condition at Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas, according to police.

They believe he is still in the area where the shooting happened.

The initial shooting victim was also hospitalized and is in an intensive care unit, Rawlings said.

The suspect - a local resident - was later found dead inside a home. Doesn't that sound like a ski mask-wearing insane gunman is at large and could possibly strike again, thereby definitely threatening the public?
