An officer-involved shooting has been reported at a Home Depot located in the 11600 block of Forest Central Drive in Dallas.

Police in Dallas said they have arrested the man they say is responsible for shooting two police officers at a Home Depot on Tuesday, according to the Dallas Police Department's Twitter. She said surgery was completed on the police officers and store employee late on Tuesday at the hospital.

Dallas police say they have arrested a suspect in the shooting. The suspect, identified by police as 29-year-old Armando Luis Juarez, is still at large.

Earlier on Tuesday, Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings also tweeted on the shooting: "We are closely monitoring the situation in northeast Dallas and praying for our officers and their families".

Juarez was taken into custody on Tuesday night. One of the officers was taken to a local hospital, the CBS station said.

Adding to the fear, a couple of oxygen masks had also deployed and the overhead panel cover of seat 12-U got cracks. Shocking footage from inside the Air India flight shows it was so severe it knocked a window panel off.

A family member, who told WFAA she hadn't seen Juarez in a week, said he was unemployed. At the arrival of the cover officers, the suspect produced a hand gun and fired shots striking the two responding officers and a civilian.

Police identified the suspect as Armando Juarez, 29, and was wearing a white T-shirt and blue jean shorts. Armored police vehicles were seen driving toward the Home Depot on US 7, and officers could be seen searching the surrounding area for the suspect. An officer with a police search dog was also on the scene, going into a wooded area.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms also tweeted it was responding to the incident. The female officer, who was shot in the face, was in stable condition.

Dallas Police Chief Renee Hall addressed the media during a press conference asking for prayers for their officers.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbot echoed the mayor's thoughts.
