The Dallas Police Department confirmed that two officers and a civilian were shot on Tuesday

The mayor of Dallas says a police officer has died a day after a shooting that also wounded another officer and a home improvement store employee.

CBS station KTVT reports the officer died at Texas Health Presbyterian Dallas Wednesday morning while another remains in critical condition.

The two police officers involved were Crystal Almeida and Rogelio Santander, both are three-year veterans.

The suspect, Armando Juarez, 29, was captured Tuesday night after a vehicle chase that started in southeastern Dallas and ended in the northeastern area of the city.

The shooting happened around 4 p.m. Tuesday at the Home Depot store near Forest Central Drive.

Police said that the civilian was a loss prevention officer for Home Depot.

The detainee, a 29-year-old Armando Juarez, reached an impasse in one of the residential areas and was surrounded by police.

Juarez was captured on Tuesday night after a high-speed auto chase between officers.

The Packers couldn't go wrong if either Davenport or Boston College's Harold Landry are on the board when they pick at No. 14. One thing that stopped him was that the Chiefs would have had to part with their second-round pick this year.

Juarez has been charged with aggravated assault of a public servant, aggravated assault in retaliation, and theft of property up to $32,000. He was taken into custody following a auto chase hours after the afternoon shooting.

At least one person could be seen being loaded onto an ambulance. Police have not said if he was suspected of shoplifting or why he was being ejected from store.

The officers who responded to the call were wounded, police said.

Several Home Depot employees told WFAA that there was a ruckus behind the store and that they heard gunshots. Police Chief U. Renee Hall says the two officers and the store loss-prevention officer underwent surgery for their injuries. The store has since reopened. The female officer, who was shot in the face, was in stable condition. He also pleaded guilty to a drug-possession charge. He was wanted Tuesday after skipping a sentencing hearing in February.

Governor Greg Abbott said that his thoughts and prayers are with the Dallas Police Department at this time.

"I continue to be upset at the lack of respect of our police in this city and in our country", Rawlings said at the news conference.

The Assist the Officer Foundation of Dallas have set up a donation fund for those wanting to help.
