A manhunt for the man believed to be responsible for the shooting of three officers in Dallas has ended after a chase.

All three officers are out of surgery, the Dallas police chief said Tuesday night. On Wednesday morning, the police department identified its two officers as Crystal Almeida and Rogelio Santander. Both have worked at the department for three years. The president of the Dallas Police Association told KXAS Santander is "holding in there," and Almeida is "doing better than they suspected, but she is holding on."

The shooting happened at the Home Depot in the 11600 block of Forest Central Drive.

Dozens of Dallas police officers and emergency vehicles surrounded the Home Depot parking lot on the city's north side.

In an evening briefing, officials said officers were called to the store to assist with an arrest at 4:12 p.m.

Shortly after arriving, two police officers and a civilian loss prevention officer were shot.

They released the name of the suspect in the shooting: 29-year-old Armando Juarez. He possibly left the store in a white pickup truck and was believed to be armed, before being caught with a female passenger following a police chase. He faces aggravated assault on a police officer and felony theft charges.
