Dallas paramedic shot, suspect found dead with 2nd body

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

A body found late Monday was believed to be that of a gunman who shot a paramedic responding to the scene of an earlier shooting in Dallas.

Dallas Fire-Rescue officials, who said they were not going to identify the paramedic until his family was notified, said the paramedic was not wearing body armor when he was shot.

With the wounded evacuated and the suspect believed to be barricaded inside his home, police shut down roads and blocked access to the area until the SWAT team arrived and used a robot to search Brown's home. The mayor said the civilian whom the paramedic was trying to help when he was shot is also in intensive care.

The city says the paramedic is in critical but stable condition at Baylor University Medical Center. Rawlings didn't give details of the paramedic's injuries, but said 'he is going to have to undergo extensive medical treatment to get him back up to par'.

According to reports, Brown, who worked as a custodian in Dallas, was found dead by authorities with another male inside of a home near the scene several hours after the shooting took place.

Another police officer responding to the call was also injured but was not taken to the hospital.

"Observing the condition of the EMT/Paramedic, DPD transported him to Baylor Hospital where he remains in critical but stable condition".

The Tweet from the Dallas Police Department confirms other messages on social media that an active shooter opened fire on firefighters in Old East Dallas.

Police believe the shooting started as a dispute between the suspect and the gunshot victim.

The person's condition is unknown.

Dallas police Officers William Bruce and Thomas McPherson arrived and saw Brown outside with rifle.

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. Brown injured at least one police officer as he tried to flee, and he ran into another neighbor's house, where police found him and another person inside dead after the suspect allegedly first shot and murdered the resident and then shot and killed himself.

Police spokesman Warren Mitchell said "the entire area is still active and very dangerous". Brown began shooting, and the officers took cover, Blankenbaker said.

The shooting happened near the Dallas Fire-Rescue's Dodd J. Miller Training Center, about a quarter-mile south of Interstate 30.

"That act likely saved that paramedic's life", said Chief David Pughes with the Dallas Police Department.
